An Introduction to Mindfulness
Dr. Shauna Shapiro
Where were you when you learned that U.S. president #45 was elected? Do you remember the day when Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crashed?

How about your birthday three years ago - do you remember that one? What about your significant other’s birthday last year?
