Basic Mindfulness: Using Counting as a Point of Focus

March 5th,2021 | 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM
Professor/Instructor/Speaker: Penny Mechley-Porter

Join Penny as she helps you deepen your mindfulness practice. In this simple exercise, you'll mindfully count your breath cycles to 7 and then restart. Over time, this practice can help you improve focus, as well as learn self forgiveness when you get lost in thought. You simply start again.

This event will be broadcast digitally on the Jefferson's Facebook page and made available on our website.
