Intro to Mindfulness
Marian Smith, the speaker for “Introduction to Mindfulness”, took us through a journey of quiet self-reflection and injected the right amount of up-to-date research findings on the benefits of the practice of mindfulness. The class ended with a ten minutes meditation practice that embodies the teachings of mindfulness and everyone left happily rejuvenated. It was a positive experience for all and we look forward to engaging with Marian in future workshops!
