Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
Tuesday September 30, 2014
5:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Organization: Women's Health Resource Center
Join us for a life affirming workshop in conscious living. We will practice guided instruction in mindfulness meditation, gentle stretching and mindful yoga. Our practice will be enhanced by group dialogue and discussions aimed at increased awareness in everyday life. Additionally, there will be home assignments with four practice CDs. The course consists of six weekly classes and one day long Saturday retreat.
Participants in the past have benefited from reductions in stress, chronic pain or illness, anxiety, stomach ailments, sleep disturbances, fatigue, high blood pressure and headaches. This class was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and there is reliable research that supports claims that participants experience enhanced psychological hardiness and a greater sense of meaning and purpose in their lives.
Please note that participants must attend the Free Introduction prior to the full series. Please call us if you have a conflict on the evening of September 23rd.
