NEW MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP!

Please join Paula’s workshop on Saturday, October 17 & Saturday, October 24, 2020, from 10-12 PM EST.

Life is full of unknowns right now. It is natural to feel stress, anxiety and worry as we face this time of uncertainty and general disruption in our day to day lives.

In order to have the resiliency to face these difficulties large or small that to some extent are out of our control, we need to develop the capacity to find and nurture the positive parts of ourselves and our situations. It is also important to realize that we may need new tools in addition to our trusted coping strategies that have worked for us in the past. Practicing mindfulness can provide us with simple and reliable strategies to enhance life quality both now and in the future.

Mindfulness Practices included in this Workshop:

  • Explore our current stress triggers, physical manifestations of stress, and habitual stress reactivity
  • Cultivate the ability to respond from a calmer baseline to unpleasant events
  • Learn ways to slow the ruminating mind, thereby decreasing catastrophic thinking and its effect on our overall well-being
  • Enhance stress resiliency as we develop techniques for intentionally focusing on positive and pleasurable life events

Mindfulness Practices included in this Workshop:

  • Body Scan Meditation to enhance the Mind Body connection
  • Seated Meditation for Long Term overall Health Benefits
  • Meditations on Working with; Thoughts, Positive Emotions, Difficult Emotions, Challenges
  • Mindful Breathing for De-escalating the Stress Response
  • Loving Kindness Meditation for Developing Self-compassion and Gratitude
