A Mindful Approach to Anxiety:  Thursday evenings, 4:30-6:00pm beginning January 13, 2010.  This group focuses on teaching mindfulness as a means of becoming aware of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that lead us to define and identify ourselves as anxious.  The goal of this mindful approach is to learn how to better manage our uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, not by attempting to control or avoid them, but by inquiring deeply into them and accepting them.
