We all know by now that mindfulness is good for you. In fact, literally thousands of studies have been published in the past decade showing that taking a few minutes a day to sense into your breath, your body, and your world has beneficial effects for everything from your immune system to your stress levels to your emotional health.

In this two-hour evening event, Devon and Craig will lead participants through the empirical support for mindfulness and introduce them to a series of heart-based meditation practices.

For those interested in more practice, this evening will be followed by a daylong workshop, "Mindfulness and the Good Life" also at Hidden Springs Wellness Center from 10-4 on Saturday. Preregistration for the daylong is recommended. Learn more here.
