SOMETIMES OUR MIND CAN FEEL LIKE A WILD HORSE.

The more we try to control it, the more it seems to bolt off into the fields of distraction and reactivity. But just as taming a wild horse takes effort, method and patience - so does taming our minds.

Mindfulness is a powerful technique for stabilizing and strengthening our mind, and for developing clarity & insight. Confirmed by the experience of millions of human beings over thousands of years - as well as by the research and findings of contemporary neuro-science - incorporating this practice into your daily routine can create long-lasting benefits: You lower your stress level, you easily connect with others, you improve your focus, and you are kinder to yourself. The best part is, all you need is a comfortable place to sit.

This program will be led by renowned senior Buddhist teacher and CEO/Founder of Dharma Moon, David Nichtern and Dharma Moon's Program Director, Rebecca D’Onofrio.
