About the event:
Mindfulness is an ancient method of deliberate, moment-to-moment attention. It has helped a variety of people working in the law listen better to their clients and themselves and gain distance from their own habitual reactions, both of which can allow them to feel and perform better.

This program will offer instruction and practice in mindfulness meditation, including mindful movement; exercises involving the application of mindfulness to listening, talking and mediating; and discussions on the application of mindfulness in mediation and law-related settings. CLE credits have been applied for.

To learn more about the event, contact Donna Erez-Navot at or (608) 262-4870.
