RETRO INSPIRATIONS: EXPLORING MINDFULNESS
Being mindful is about improving our ability to enjoy the present. Practicing mindfulness helps us gain focus, choose our focus, and be more purposeful in where that focus leads our attention, power, and action. In this class we will get inspired by classic rock & roll and leave how our favorite rockers used their talents to live purposefully. We will focus on the inspiration of musicians, singers, and songwritters like James Brown, Carole King, Ringo Starr, The Doors, and James Taylor to name a few.

I
t is a beautiful way to reveal, restore and return YOU to a life of awe, wonder and possibility...one to-do at a time.
