REMINDful Mondays Meetup
~ Come Change Your Mind!!! ~
“If you truly want to change your life you must first change your mind.”
Would you like to learn about mindfulness? Are you looking for ways to improve your physical or emotional well-being? Has your mindfulness practice gone stale or maybe you feel that you don’t know how to meditate?
Or maybe you would like to practice with like-minded folks? Fantastic! Then JOIN US twice monthly to REcharge and be REminded of how to activate mindfulness throughout your daily life. There’s something wonderful that happens when we learn and grow together, in a safe and supportive community of like-minded folks.

Mindful ~ Kindful ~ Skillful
“Recent research provides strong evidence that practicing non-judgmental, present-moment awareness (a.k.a. mindfulness) changes the brain…” ~Mindfulness Can Literally Change Your Brain
“By charting new pathways in the brain, mindfulness can change the banter inside our heads from chaotic to calm.” ~How the Brain Changes When You Meditate
“Meditation can relax you and regulate your emotions in the short term, but it can also change your brain permanently if you approach it as a form of mental exercise. Any type of learning is a highly individual process, with the common denominator being plain hard work. And science shows that if we invest our effort into reprogramming our brains, it can truly guide us towards a better life.” ~Neuroscience of Mindfulness: What Happens to Your Brain When You Meditate
