May: Practices in Mindfulness, Speaker Joining Meeting Virtually on Zoom

Linda MacLeod has arranged for Maighna Jain to join us virtually to present a program on mindfulness. Linda, who is an attorney, has attended one of the speaker's sessions, and she found that it focuses on the importance of taking the time to be aware of and live in the present rather than being regretful about the past or anxious about the future. It has helped Linda tremendously when she is confronted with the often daily stresses of living as a blind or low-vision individual.
