Mindful Mornings with Rev Shelley & Greg Sabatino @ Norman Bird Sanctuary
We invite you to join us each Saturday morning from 9:30-11:00 for a variety of practical and inspiring mindfulness practices.

Please wear footwear with good traction, dress in layers, bring your yoga mat and a thick blanket. Registration is needed through Eventbrite. Pay-what-you-wish suggested range $10-$20.
