Stress is a normal part of everyday life. The current amount of physical, mental and social stress many are experiencing in U.S. society, however, is not normal. We practice mindfulness so that we can learn to relate to our stress in a new, healthier way. The practice of mindfulness is a radical shift to embracing and accepting who we are – completely, non-judgmentally, with love and compassion.
Develop and strengthen inner resources for coping, growing, and healing.
