Hospice of the Valley offers ways to relax and stay focused on the present through its Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) training.
Hospice of the Valley offers mindfulness sittings for free every Thursday from noon to 12:30 p.m. at the Phoenix Art Museum at 1625 N. Central Ave. These sessions, which are led by Hospice of the Valley staff members, are open to the public.
Students focus on breathing and slowing down their movements. Mindfulness gives people a chance to just be and experience what is happening at the moment.
