Perhaps you’ve heard how helpful mindfulness is, but can’t fit yet another thing into your schedule. Or you’ve tried meditation and found yourself feeling antsy at the three-minute mark, ready to tackle your to-do list instead of sitting still.

You will walk away with an understanding of what mindfulness is, its remarkable impact on your well-being, and a personal plan for integrating gentle, intentional presence into your everyday activities.
