    “Being Present in the Present”
    In a time where multitasking and doing more with less are often the expectation, it is critical to commit to the power of presence in all areas of our lives. So often, long periods of time elapse with little time to stop, breathe, reflect and enjoy. We only have one moment in each moment! This session will focus on the benefits of presence and mindfulness, as well as strategies to increase our own presence to maximize personal and professional benefits.Speaker: Regina Speaker Palubinsky Ed.D., Great Valley SD superintendent
