Event description

Description

Join Brass Tacks Collective for a two-hour workshop on Mindfulness Meditation, led by Poonam Desai!

Learn how to incorporate mindfulness meditation and practices into your daily and professional life. Life moves at warp speeds, and it often feels as though we must move just as fast to keep up and feel productive. It is often so difficult to stop and that we compulsively multi-task and worry. Finding time to yourself and for yourself may be a far-reaching goal. Mindfulness has been shown by research to have significant positive benefits for individuals, including decreased stress, improved focus, and increase feelings of well-being. In this workshop, we will explore how our minds and bodies are connected and impact our daily life. We'll work to increase our awareness and gain insight into our own behavior and mental patterns. You will have the opportunity to learn about the latest science on mindfulness and practice techniques to begin or develop your own mindfulness practice.
