Mindfulness and Stress Reduction Workshop

In this session we learn about the evolution of the mind and explore how the body can be an anchor to the present and a radar for important messages.  It’s not the stressor but rather it is our perception that is responsible for much of our thoughts and emotions; maybe as much as 90% of our stress reaction is attributed to how we see or don’t see things. In this session we learn how mindful awareness can help to see clearly and to make helpful choices to reduce stress and increase joy. We may not be able to stop the waves but maybe we can learn to surf them!

From the wisdom of Victor Frankl:

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
