ALL-DAY CLASS (DAY OF MINDFULNESS)

The All-Day Class is an intense 7.5 hour session that will guide you on how to apply mindfulness across many situations of your life and how you can grow your practice of mindfulness beyond the end of the 8-week course. Do bring the following for your own comfort:
