"Practical Mindfulness for Everyday Living"

Free

with Support Group

Calendar Next session starts Jan 22, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week
11 additional sessions through Dec 23, 2020

In our monthly group gatherings, we will discuss the benefits of a mindful approach to daily routines. The "bumps in the road," both large and small, that we face on a daily basis are opportunities to dig deeper into ourselves, to find a way to remain balanced amidst chaos.

You'll be led through guided visualizations and meditations, as well as provided with practical tools to get to the bottom of what triggers us, and why, to better work and flow with all that life brings.

For more information, please call Jennifer Baldwin, MSW, at 518-886-5648.

This program is funded by Saratoga Hospital Patient Cancer Funds.
