Wellness Center announces info sessions on mindfulness meditation
Stress less; enjoy more. Mindfulness meditation cultivates nonjudgmental awareness in day-to-day life. It develops the potential to experience each moment, no matter how difficult or
intense, with greater serenity and clarity. It helps restore and maintain a sense of personal balance and develops the skills to avoid emotional, physical and professional burnout.
