This experiential online workshop will offer techniques for dealing with “the full catastrophe” in our lives and for cultivating our deepest potential for the ease of well-being. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a well-recognized approach that has been shown to be effective in reducing stress, depression and anxiety; enhancing communication and health; fostering courage in difficult situations and supporting overall health. The day will include an introduction to the theory of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, guided instruction in mindfulness practices used in MBSR (body scan, sitting and walking meditation, mindful hatha yoga), and discussion of the benefits and applications of mindfulness in daily life.
