Mindfulness Meditation

Add to My Schedule

Brief Abstract

Mindfulness, has been defined as a practice of “bringing one's attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment” (Baer, 2003). Let’s start the day right. Join Clark and Dave as they lead participants through mindful meditations before the conference program begins. These sessions will be geared toward centering ourselves on higher levels of consciousness so that we can experience OLC Innovate in a more healthy and present way together.
