Magyari defines mindfulness as being in the present moment, especially when it comes to completing simple tasks.  Of course, this is not an easy thing to accomplish, but Magyari wants to help people with that.  

Sponsored by the Ann Arbor Center for Mindfulness, Magyari will hosting a two-day workshop and retreat on October 20-21.  On the first day, the workshop will focus on managing trauma-related events with theories and special strategies.  

The second day will be an all-day retreat that will demonstrate meditation techniques that are useful for handling trauma.
