Mindfulness.  You see it mentioned everywhere, even Time Magazine.  What used to be an obscure practice has gone mainstream.  It promises a host of benefits and cures for what ails us, all with a scientific pedigree.  There are claims that it can reduce our stress and anxiety. That it can make us more resilient in dealing of our crazy lives. That it can be supportive for a wide range of chronic diagnoses.  That it can make us happy.

So what is this Mindfulness stuff?  How does it work? What is some of the science behind it?  What is it good for? And how do you incorporate it into your life?

In this webinar you will learn the core definition of mindfulness, experience several mindful practices and discover how developing a practice can benefit you and those you serve.

Learning Objectives:

Discover the key principles of mindfulness

Learn what mindfulness is and is not

Explore the benefits of Mindfulness
