This program is offered virtually. Members can register through our weekly newsletter.
Join us in the practice of taking a pause, breathing deeply, and leaning into the present moment. This 45-minute class offers a safe space to explore stillness and awareness through guided meditation and mindfulness practices. Together we will use our breath and senses to practice arriving in the present, cultivating compassion, and tuning into the wisdom of our bodies and each other.
Comfortable clothing and a supportive and quiet place to sit or lay are helpful for this program.
