Library Programs

Mindfulness Workshop, Wednesday, August 17, 2:30-4:00pm
Teens | Adults

Join Kathy Mitchell as she continues to share her mindfulness practice with our community. The practice of being fully present in the moment has been proven by countless studies to increase calm, ease, and clearer thinking.  It also reduces anxiety, stress, and impulsive reactivity.  When we are being mindful, even everyday experiences are more rich and interesting. Learn how to find and employ this quality of attention for benefits in your own life.
