Introduction to Mindfulness

Mindfulness is paying attention to our present moment experiences with openness and curiosity. It has scientific support as a means to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.  In this inspiring, interactive program led by Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC), you can learn helpful, practical, and scientifically-proven techniques to bring more ease into your life.
