Meditation and Relaxation

Mindfulness and relaxation meditations can help to reduce the impact of stress on our mind, body and emotions.  Regular meditation practice can improve our wellbeing, and our sense of calm and resilience in facing life's challenges.  

"Practicing Mindfulness can help us to become more aware of all that we have in our lives to be grateful for...  opening our eyes and hearts to all the beauty around us that we so often take for granted."  Carolyn Sinnott, MIACP, MIAHIP
