On Being Mindful

Foundational Seminar on Basic Mindfulness

Dan Towery, LPC presents a Foundational Seminar on Basic Mindfulness. Seminars are held at local hotels/ conference centers. The purpose of the Foundational Seminar on Basic Mindfulness Training is to familiarize individuals with mindfulness practice and how it can help address specific problems. Mindfulness has been clinically demonstrated to benefit adults and teens who struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, anger, trauma, eating disorders and a host of other psychological, emotional, behavioral and relational problems. It will include a Power Point, video clips, handouts and mindfulness practice in a very interactive three hour session with breaks and refreshments.

Included in the Group will be a field trip to do a mindful walk on the W & OD Bike Trail in Leesburg on a Saturday morning.
