**All sessions held at the Bald Eagle Middle/High School in the LGI from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM**
Have you ever driven your car somewhere only to realize you remember nothing about your trip? Have you ever noticed when you or your child has done something out of anger or worry, without realizing it, and then regretted it later? Most of us have! Mindfulness techniques help us to be fully present and aware of what we are doing without feeling overwhelmed or overly reactive to what is going on around us.
Choose as many sessions as you would like. Participation in a previous session is not required. Registration link (https://goo.gl/forms/YXG9Uqpbr...)
