We discuss the science of each topic and how we can practice over time so that a "state" can become a "trait," our new normal. Mindfulness meditation is the foundation of the series and will be taught and practiced in each session. This series is also an opportunity to respond to the current social and political tension in a way that is peaceful and constructive.
