The 4th Annual Mindfulness Fest will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd on the campus of UNC Asheville. Move into mindfulness by practicing how to listen to your body while consciously and courageously trusting the guidance within. Loosen your stress, awaken your joy and connect with the spirit inside. This class will invite a slow, deliberate exploration of the present moment as we root into the earth, rise up to reach for more and expand our awareness to include all.
