About the 8-Week Online Program

Each 60-minute session will explore a theme related to emotional well-being, guided mindfulness practice (ranging from one to 15 minutes), time for inner reflection, and an opportunity for rejuvenation. Sessions will incorporate videos, opportunities for discussion and activities to enhance learning.​ Participants will receive resources and information to support developing a mindfulness practice.  You can attend the class live or by video recording.

Future 2018 training dates will be announced shortly.  Please sign up for our quarterly eBulletin to receive updates on training opportunities.
