Week 1) What is Mindfulness, the science, benefits, and how to use in everyday life.
Week 2) Creating the habit, and sharpening the focus with inner tools to manage difficult emotions.
Week 3) Mindfulness with chronic pain.
Week 4) Mindfulness of caregiving and in our relationships.
Week 5) Building resilience, compassion and creativity.
Week 6) Boosting happiness and living meaningfully.
