ABC’s of Mindfulness


“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different.” C.S. Lewis

The rewards of practicing mindfulness have the potential to transform your attitudes, behaviors, and physical & emotional well-being in a very positive and powerful way, which you may hardly notice, that is, until you notice them! Research is proving this over and over again! Here at the “YOUniversity”, we are learning and practicing our ABC’s of mindfulness, from kids to grownups. Join us! Decide how you want to “be”.
