Comments after the 8 Weeks Course from recent Participants:
I am now more able to see my options and what choices make sense for me in the moment
"...My life has changed profoundly....I have a much deeper appreciation of life. A whole new outlook...."
My path to mindfulness began in Duluth at the University of Minnesota. Finding healthier ways to peace, while completing a BA in Communication and Art. Movement and nature were key tools & teachers. I feel so fortunate to have discovered how yoga and meditation connect us, challenge us and help us grow.
