Open Mind, Clear Heart: The Regenerative Power of Mindfulness

Jade Weston Kranz, Senior Meditation Producer, 10% Happier

WEDNESDAY

2:30PM - 3:30PM

Mindfulness practice is based on the radical idea that the natural state of the mind is not scattered, nervous, and tense, but rather calm, creative, and clear. Making meditation a part of our life provides a way to settle into this natural state more often. As a result, we can learn to live in alignment with our intentions, rather than getting dragged around by our reactions to life’s stressors. In this workshop, you will learn everything you need to know to bring meditation—and the clarity and power it engenders—into your day to day life.
