May I meet this moment fully. May I meet it as a friend. This is an opportunity for women over 55 years of age to come together for contemplation and connection to use the tools of mindfulness to meet the joys, sorrows, fears, pleasures and challenges of aging with greater ease, balance, and control. Our time together will include conversation, information, and participation in simple mindfulness meditation practices provided in a safe and supportive environment.
