Mindfulness can help you:

  • become less absorbed in worrying about the past or the future.
  • see more options in responding to problems.
  • feel less overwhelmed by each passing difficulty.
  • recognize thoughts are not facts.
  • discover insights into your feelings and actions.
  • communicate more effectively.

What participants say:

"You are a lovely team. Thank you for being you, Jane and Jean. I am so grateful to have found you. Humor is much appreciated and definitely one of the elixirs of life! My relationship with my husband and my daughter is better, less anger on my part. Not all the time but more of the time!" A. H.
