Mindfulness is a particular kind of paying attention. We call it awareness in a non-judging way. Mindfulness based programs have been proven to be a great addition to medications for dozens of medical conditions, both those that are defined as physical (like high blood pressure or ulcerative colitis or cancer) and those that are defined as mental (like anxiety and depression). Join this class to learn to practice mindfulness and improve your health and life! Learn more about mindfulness from Dr. Arthur Hoffman here.
