Start making changes in your life to better manage stress, improve your self-esteem, and create balance and equanimity. Hugh Montgomery will guide participants in both planning and implementing changes in lifestyle by learning about health and well-being, examining their current life practices, working on creating balance of physical, mental/emotional/spiritual and social well-being, and creating and moving toward personal goals. This class will be both informative and practical, with discussion and directed activities as a large part of each class.

Dates: July 11 - August 1, 2017, Tuesdays, 10:00am - 12:00pm
