This class will teach you how to build inner resources to face day-to-day challenges and stressors with greater ease, and cultivate positive emotions such as joy, gratitude, and compassion for self and other. We will address common inner obstacles to well-being, based on five mental habits that we all experience, and you will learn five tools to help you reduce stress, cultivate greater well-being, and shift from using survival circuitry to activating circuits for thriving. This class combines science and wisdom, heart, mind and body, as you learn evidence-based, mind-body practices that will help to strengthen mindful awareness, self-compassion, resilience, and the ability to show up as your best self. Each class will offer experiential exercises to help you practice the skills being taught so that you can take them into your daily life.
Classes will meet 8 consecutive Monday evenings from 5:30-6:30pm via Zoom. (Please note: The first class will end at 7:00pm).
