Mindfulness with Paulette Grotrian

Led by experienced meditator and mindfulness teacher Paulette Grotrian, we will define mindfulness and look at how it can help us to pause, create space, and come from a place of response rather than reaction to help reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being. Mon. 1/25 at 7pm or Tue. 1/26 at 1pm.
