Cultivating a practice of mindfulness is a smart investment in your career, your health, and your overall happiness. Individuals who meditate and do other stress-relieving activities seem to feel better, do better, and find that the practice or break sustains them in their personal and professional lives. The focus of the session will vary from week to week and may include meditation, chi gong, art activities, visiting dogs, and other fun de-stressors. Drop-in, relax, make some new friends!

Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 7:30-9:30pm
