Mindfully Aware: A 10 minute Practice

Research evidence indicates that being mindful enhances both physical and mental health. Mindfulness has the capacity to provide mental clarity, both mental and physical relaxation, and reduce the symptoms of acute and chronic pain. The practice of mindful awareness begins with 10 minutes of meditation. Participants will learn ways of becoming mindful and will practice a guided meditation.
