Be in the present moment
Mindfulness practice helps people relax, focus and breathe, which calms the mind and body.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) training has been studied scientifically and found to improve physical symptoms (such as chronic pain, high blood pressure, shortness of breath and insomnia) and to decrease emotional and psychological distress (such as anxiety and depression). Brain MRIs before and after an eight-week course show growth of temporal lobe areas (memory, emotional stability) and shrinkage of the amygdala (anxiety, anger, fear).
Unless otherwise noted, cost is $150 per person; $25 for HOV staff, volunteers, and family caregivers. Discounted classes available.
