These uniquely difficult times are emotionally depleting for everybody. Mindfulness fosters calm and inner peace, making people aware of their ability to choose either to react or to respond to a situation. This practice, according to scientific research, builds emotional resilience and enhances the immune system.
This workshop (1 hour meetings/week, 5 weeks), provides an introduction to creating and incorporating an effective and ongoing mindfulness practice in all aspects of your life. Appropriate for beginners and anyone who wants to refresh their practice, you will learn to reduce stress and gain more inner peace by:
- Developing a healthier relationship with your thoughts
- Developing more balance with your emotions
- Being more in touch with your body and mind
