Building Mental Strength and Tackling Anxiety

Special Interest Speaker Series

** WCNY Response to COVID-19 **
Mindfulness is getting a lot of positive press recently. Two of the most important skills are aiming of the mind and sustaining our attention.  To be able to do this, we need a level of awareness that helps us know what to focus our attention on.  This program helps us learn about this ancient concept that is getting so much attention and to develop these skills, that once nurtured, can be utilized in all areas of our lives.

Participants will learn about some of the supporting research, they will learn about the theory and most importantly participants will get actual experience in the basics of the practice.
