“Jeff Browning is one of Nashville’s greatest hidden treasures. It is with great appreciation that he has offered to teach this workshop and I hope that you can find the time to practice, study and learn from Jeff. Jeff was one of the first people I met when I moved to Nashville and he was the inspirational source that originally led me to teach mindfulness to youth.”
