If you eat to fight boredom, stress, loneliness or a negative mood, Mindful Eating – July 21 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. – provides an excellent opportunity to develop healthy eating habits for care of the body and mind.

If you are looking for a simple way to free yourself from mental chatter, Mindful Practice may be just the class for you. Join us July 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for this short workshop that could provide a great deal of long-term benefits.

Both of these workshops focus on finding healthy ways to keep centered no matter what life brings your way.
