Event Details

This 9 week course gives people a chance to learn skills to help live life more effectively. This course uses scientifically-supported techiniques to help you:

  • create a rich and meaningful life
  • deepen relationships
  • develop self-compassion
  • be more mindful and present in your daily life
  • skillfullly navigate life obstacles
  • disarm anxiety and depression
  • and get out of your mind and into your life!

When we get caught in struggles with difficult thoughts and feelings, we tend to lose contact with what's important to us. In ACT on Life, you'll learn techniques based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to break the grip of unwanted thoughts and feelings and more fully engage your life. The facilitators of this course do not present themselves as experts imparting their knowledge; rather, they are fellow travelers who use and practice ACT in their own lives. You'll learn how to choose valued directions and skillfully work with obstacles that get in your way. Our goal is to teach you skills that you can use to continue improving your life long after this course has ended.

Time: This class is held in the evenings and the next group will start in the fall of 2014

Cost: $180 ($20 per class)

*Note: No one is turned away because of inability to pay. Please contact us if you need a reduced fee.
