What is Mindfulness?
It is the practice of focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.  The practice of mindfulness has proven to be helpful in handling stress and anxiety. Mindfulness will be offered in the CKG office on Monday evenings starting in October. Click here for more information or to register online.
