An intensive eight week course for people who feel overstressed by everyday life, overwork, or by medical or emotional problems (including but not limited to chronic medical conditions, hypertension, cardiac disease, PMS, headache, IBS, cancer, diabetes, panic disorder, anxiety, depression).
Participants will learn several mindfulness based practices for reducing stress and for cultivating inner strength.

Mindfulness provides a simple but powerful route for getting ourselves unstuck and back into touch with our own wisdom and vitality.
