Mindfulness and Love
Mindfulness is a way of being that promotes increased peace, presence and a sense of calmness in life. When we bring these practices to our experience of relationship, we cultivate deeper and more meaningful connections with others. In this workshop, we will learn about affirmative, accessible, and practical ways to cultivate sweeter experiences of love, intimacy and connection that can be applied to all of our relationships.
