Think of your favorite meeting place, that little café on the corner that just makes you feel good and comforted and supported. That is Mindful Café.

Mindful Café offers new ways to get in touch with amazing Yosemite Mariposa County and the beautiful nature around it by unplugging, and tuning in to the world around us. From forest bathing, mindfulness retreats, labyrinth walks and more. Mindful Café offers mindfulness activities in a way that is accessible to everyone: simple, nourishing and yummy.

So, what is this mindfulness stuff all about anyway? Mindfulness is simply being fully aware, fully engaged in the present moment. Simple yes, but not always easy. Our human brains are conditioned to think about the past and worry about the future. We become caught up in creating the story, instead of letting it unfold. And the thing is, we’re worrying about something that may or may not happen, wasting our precious energy for nothing.
