From Anderson Cooper to Oprah to Google, everyone seems to be talking about mindfulness. But what is it really? Mindfulness is a way of meeting life’s challenges with greater calm and wisdom.

  • enhanced interpersonal communication and relationships
  • greater energy and enthusiasm for life

This 2 hour workshop is designed to give you a basic understanding of the science and practice of mindfulness. You will also learn about the mindfulness courses offered to staff, leaders and physicians at HHS, specifically designed for the unique needs of healthcare workers.
