Come take a mindfulness class to learn how to actively engage in and improve your ability to take better care of your own health and well-being. Discover peace of mind, a sense of balance, and the ability to manage and enjoy life.
Mindfulness is the practice of cultivating awareness of what is happening in the present moment in a way that is compassionate, nonreactive, and nonjudgmental. It’s an innate ability we all have, though the mind gets conditioned to be everywhere else—caught up in thoughts about the past or worry about the future—except right here.
The Davis Mindfulness Center aims to cultivate community resilience through mindfulness training and wellness education. A place where community members will actively engage in and improve their ability to manage and enjoy life, and develop and strengthen inner resources for coping, growing, and healing.
