We will practice some tools to regain our balance of mind and bodies. Research shows that practicing meditation as a skill can help to manage anxiety, stress, and worry. We will practice some skills in compassion and mindfulness meditation to help us cultivate our capacities of friendliness, strength, wisdom, calm, kindness and balance."
