UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) is an incredible resource for slowing down. They offer free weekly classes! Their mission is “to foster mindful awareness across the lifespan through education and research to promote well-being and a more compassionate society”
Mindful awareness can be defined as paying attention to present moment experiences with openness, curiosity, and a willingness to be with what is. It is a necessary antidote to the stresses of modern times. It invites us to stop, breathe, observe, and connect with one’s inner experience.
