Mindfulness for Full Minds

Eight Week Series Beginning September 10

Are you ready to be proactive about your health and well-being? Do you want to acquire new tools for living with more strength and resilience? Integrating mindfulness practices into your life will help you live with greater ease, joy, depth, and balance every day.

This series is designed for professionals who want to deal more effectively with work burnout and stress and for all who want to live healthier, more engaged lives. Through group and individual instruction, learn how to practice and integrate mindfulness into your daily life, and rediscover the healthy balance that lies beneath life’s turbulent changes.

We will provide a varied approach to meditation guiding you through meditations that are seated, reclined, walking. We will also explore moving meditation through a gentle yoga practice. You will learn to:

  • Cope more effectively with both short and long-term stress
  • Develop greater self-respect, energy, and enthusiasm for life
  • Obtain improvements in physical and psychological well-being

Support will be provided with materials that will encourage a routine in daily practice after the workshop.

‘Can’t’ is no longer in my vocabulary, and I have a sense of pride in my ability to work toward a goal and not only achieve it, but often exceed it.
