Coming Home: Mindfulness skills to help you heal and thrive after your mission


6-Week Mindfulness Course

Course Description:

An LDS mission is often one of the most rewarding experiences in life for those who serve. It can also be among the most intense, stressful, and overwhelming. After serving the Salt Lake area with high-quality mindfulness instruction for many years, we’ve found that there is a specific need amongst the missionary population to reflect on and process their mission experience, as well as gain life-changing skills that will help them thrive in their life moving forward.

Mindfulness is both an ancient and modern practice. It is an approach that has been proven to increase mental/emotional health, stress resilience, and one’s overall sense of well being. Perhaps most significantly, it is a skill set that is accessible to anybody who is willing to start paying closer attention to what’s really going on. Right. Now.

Lower Lights is proud to offer an immersive, 6-week mindfulness experience for the missionary population–those who have served full-term missions, and those who have come home early for diverse reasons. Our hope is to provide you the support and skills you will need to remain fully committed to the most important mission of all: your life.
