Class Descriptions

Our lives are mostly spent thinking about the past or planning for the future. So we often miss what is happening in the here-and-now. Diminished awareness of the present moment severely limits our ability to live to the fullest. Mindfulness is about living consciously rather than living on autopilot. This class introduces basics of mindfulness.
