Mindfulness is sweeping the country. Many health organizations and schools are incorporating this practice, as well as major corporations and the U.S. military.  Renowned universities, including Harvard, Duke, Michigan, USC, UCLA, Stanford, UT and Texas Tech, have research programs in mindfulness, as do medical schools such as Emory, UMass, Rochester, and Georgetown.

Come join Dr. Ann Friedman, a psychologist and certified mindfulness facilitator, for an introduction to this life-transforming practice which can help you learn to handle your stressful thinking, physical pain, and emotional pain in more skillful ways.

This introduction provides a brief presentation on recent scientific research on mindfulness, easy practices for you to do at your home or office, and a basic understanding of what mindfulness is all about.
