- AUGUST 15- QUIETING THE MIND - In this workshop, we'll explore the idea of Monkey Mind and how the demands of life impact our ability to experience a quiet mind. We will review ways to quiet the mind, and practice using mindfulness to slow racing thoughts.

In this workshop we will identify common barriers to communication, explore communication styles, and discuss strategies for dealing with communication pitfalls.
