Mindfulness Resources and Guided Meditations

We can practice mindfulness everyday to support our individual thriving and goals, and our impact on the world around us. Even taking 1 minute to pause and fully experience the present moment with curiosity can make a positive difference. Having mindfulness practices and readings readily available can support individual practice and learning. 

Below are mindfulness practice resources as well as books for learning more about mindfulness frameworks, concepts, research, and applications.
