CXL:Meditation: Tools for Living

with Sal DeMaio and Caroline Demaio

October 19

Learn mindfulness meditation, a simple technique for training the mind's alertness and presence to bring flexibility and poise into daily life situations in the home or workplace. Whether dealing with distractedness, busyness, information overload, or other stressful situations, mindfulness allows us to appreciate the challenges of life and respond with confidence.

In this interactive workshop you will learn to:

  • Practice mindfulness meditation
  • Communicate mindfully with others
  • Work through fear to respond with fearlessness
  • Open to creative solutions

The program will begin at 10:30am and end at 4pm.
