Do you get easily distracted?
Do you feel stressed out, burned out, worried, or overwhelmed?
Has anxiety become your new norm?
Or have you been struggling to deal with chronic pain?
People today are facing unprecedented rates of change in their lives that range from how they fulfill the constant demand of their jobs, to how they connect with their kids or find fulfilling relationships…even how we relate to aging and our health is changing….everything seems to be spinning at a high rate of change.
Many of us are quietly floundering, caught up in days of anxiety and overwhelm, with no relief in sight.
And if you have any health issues at all….it’s almost too much.
But there is this thing called Mindfulness Meditation. Maybe you’ve just heard of it, maybe you’ve even been giving it a try Maybe you’ve seen ads online touting it’s benefit for almost anything under the sun that afflicts us.
And maybe you’re at the point with your suffering that you’re ready to give it a real try. Not with an app. But with a live, experienced teacher, in a group for support and accountability, so that you’re not just off on your own.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
~for Anxiety, Worry, Depression & Pain~
Tuesdays, April 30 – May 21
5:30 – 7pm
at the Presbyterian Healthplex
It’s a painful way to live…
Mindfulness meditation isn’t about learning how to make all of our problems go away. Instead it’s a practice of discovering an inner resilience and capacity to be with our challenges without having them constantly erode the quality of our minds and thereby our lives.
This program will teach you:
–how to practice mindfulness within the context of anxiety, worry, depression and pain
–how to use the practice of mindfulness meditation to put yourself into relaxed states
–specific practices designed to decrease our experience of pain….both in the body and mind
–the neuroscience behind how our brains can at times work against our own sense of well being….and what we can do about it
–proven strategies to help turn our minds and bodies into our allies, so as to begin to show up for our daily life with greater poise and calm
–how to use the practice to increase an inner sense of well being, even when your body feels less than well
Included with this incredible program is an e-coursebook designed to deepen your practice, and a set of guided meditations that can become a lifeline into the practice, especially when our stress and pain is high
As part of this workshop you will receive:
- A wonderful set of downloadable guided meditations designed to help you access relaxed states and get a handle on your anxiety, worry, depression and/ or pain
- An e-coursebook designed to help deepen and expand your practice
- A framework for a daily mindfulness log
