Learn to reduce stress and worry and live more fully in the present. This 90-minute session will introduce you to meditation in a fun, welcoming environment where all are beginners. If you are curious about meditation, this is a great way to try it without committing to a longer course.

This session is also the first step towards more in-depth programs offered by Atlanta Mindfulness Institute.

You’ll learn that mindfulness is not a religion but rather a practice of being aware and living fully in the present. You’ll also discover that mindfulness and meditation offer a range of physical and mental health benefits.
