*Feest* Introduction to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (In English)
Have you ever had a stressful day, or been in pain, or experienced change?
Mindfulness teaches you how to cultivate a different relationship between yourself and the things that challenge you in your life. Learn to rely completely upon your own inner resources for learning, growing and healing. This is a tool that can help you maximize your everyday life, even when facing stress, illness and pain.
In this 1-hour introductory workshop, you will be introduced to mindfulness techniques, the science and research behind mindfulness, and why this matters to you.
Can mindfulness help me?
Mindfulness has been proven to be effective in helping to treat, along with medical and psychological treatments, people who suffer from many challenges, including:
- Chronic pain
- Anxiety & depression
- Cancer & chronic disease
- Work, family and emotional stress
- Eating disturbances
- Heart disease
Can I develop a mindfulness practice of my own?
Mindfulness involves using your own innate knowledge and wisdom. Mindfulness can be developed by simply practicing awareness of the breath, gentle yoga movements, sitting quietly and walking with intention. These practices serve as a foundation for cultivating positive health behaviors and foster psychological and emotional resilience to better meet life’s challenges.
This 1-hour introductory workshop is an opportunity to learn more about how mindfulness may help you or someone you care about.
Join us and learn more about:
- What mindfulness is
- How mindfulness can improve your own health and well-being
- Mindfulness tools that you can apply to your life today
You will also have an opportunity to participate in brief mindful breathing and awareness-building exercises.
