Description

Where are you on your life path? Could you use some tools for bringing more balance and a sense of wellbeing? This Mindful Foundations course was created with the intention of reaching out to more people and supporting them to live their life to the fullest. Mindful Foundations is an ideal course for individuals wanting to start a mindfulness practice, or for people who’ve already begun on the path of mindfulness and want to strengthen their foundation.

This 4-week course is suitable for adults and teens (14yrs and up) and combines stress management theory, interactive group discussions, mindfulness principles and practices, mindful movement (gentle stretches) and home practices. This program is based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn whose work is backed up by 30 years of published research, and has been proven to reduce stress-related medical conditions and chronic pain.

PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN:

  • Mindfulness practices and movement
  • How to build resilience
  • Ways to cope with stress/anxiety/depression
  • How to overcome negative thinking patterns

Join us on Thursday Oct. 26 from 7-8:30pm – 4 week course, $130.
