Whether entering sobriety, maintaining recovery, or making other significant life changes, many practices can be helpful. Sometimes the mind can rebel against change or get stuck in old thought patterns, preventing us from moving forward. This weekly drop-in group introduces mindfulness practices, philosophy, and mental skills to focus the mind and help us move forward successfully. 

Mondays, 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. in CUCRC, UMC room 102 near the bowling alley

No sign-up required; just drop in!
