Event description
Learn the best of what mindfulness meditation has to offer for all types of physical pain - including 3 techniques + the key mindset shift

About this Event

In this experiential & educational workshop, you will learn how a scientific study showed mindfulness meditation reduced pain symptoms 27-44%, without drugs, and in just a few minutes time. We’ll cover the key mindset shift involved in this approach, as well as the most beneficial ways to apply mindfulness to pain, including three specific techniques:

• Relaxed engagement with pain

• Transforming our reactions to pain

• The healthy pain-break

We’ll also address the difference between meditation and avoidance, and how mindfulness can help us take proactive action (instead of passive resignation). Our focus will largely be on acute & chronic physical pain, but the same principles could also be applied to emotional & mental pain.
