Mind Full, or Mindful?

Is your mind filled with continual chatter about nothing particularly important? Do you feel your thoughts control you; your emotions and actions? Have you ever tried to be a "witness" to your thoughts?

Practising Mindfulness & Meditation can help! When you learn to be mindful, you start to recognize that thoughts are just thoughts and that you don't need to believe them or react to them. This is a powerful way to reduce stress, to find peace and contentment in ones life and to live fully into the moment.

Interested in learning the Art of Being Mindful?

Join us for our first ever Mindfulness & Meditation workshop series! You'll be introduced to Mindfulness & Stress Reduction in a 3-part workshop, learn to practice Mindful Eating, engage Mindfulness with meditative music, hit the yoga mat for a mindful yoga flow and to end it off, enjoy the Summer Solstice with a meditative Labyrinth walk.

For full details and registration, visit our website via the link below.
