THE MINDFUL MIDDLE: Mindfulness is all about living fully in the moment, with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. It’s about breathing, noticing what’s happening and then letting it go. You can be mindful anytime, anywhere, no matter what you’re doing. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy to do. In this class we will explore and learn about simple, informal ways to use mindfulness every day as a way to achieve self awareness and understanding. *For any returning students, Mrs. Mandala will look to further your mindfulness work that was previously taught.
