Mindfulness for Stress Reduction

Sometimes we need a few minutes to slow down our mind and our body. Life moves so quickly around us that we forget to give ourselves time to breathe and reconnect with ourselves and those around us. If you’re feeling distracted, disconnected, emotionally drained, or simply stressed, it’s time to learn a new way to relax and renew.

Whether you are a beginner or already have a daily meditation practice, join us in learning some of the science behind mindfulness, experience a variety of types of meditation practices, and learn how to incorporate mindful awareness into your daily living to manage stress and decrease anxiety.

You are invited to bring your own props for your personal practice including pillows or blankets. Chairs are available on location. Please note that there will be incense/sage burned to facilitate the meditative process.

This is a 4-week program of weekly sessions lasting 60 minutes each. Cost for participation is $120. While each program varies slightly in schedule, sessions typically take place at either 7:30am, 12pm, or 4pm on weekdays.

Space is limited. Please contact Kelsey Nimmo to learn when the next program starts and sign up for the waiting list. Kelsey is a therapist and certified yoga instructor; she frequently uses mindfulness, art, and yoga within her therapy sessions to improve mental health for her clients.
