At PBC we know how hard it can be to find space in a busy life. And with the world going crazy all around us, well, it’s just tough sometimes… So join us this spring and we’ll show you how to sit, simplify your life and let go a little!

Meditation and mindfulness are powerful agents for change in anyone’s life. We’ll learn to turn away from distraction, and explore finding contentment in the experience of our bodies, hearts and minds.
