The holidays are a season that is cherished and dreaded often in equal measure 🙂 The busyness of the season, personal and family expectations and a yearning for joy, closeness and celebration sometimes lead to overdoing and weariness.
The Mindfulness for the Holidays Workshop is designed as a time to relax, slow down and spend two hours caring for yourself learning and experiencing practical tools and resources to help you find more calmness and peace to guide you through the holidays and the new year.
We will have a special handout on Mindfulness for the Holidays for you to take with you as well as some herbal teas available for nurture in mind, body and soul.
Numerous scientific studies, including several conducted by Harvard Medical School have shown that regular mindfulness meditation can help reduce the stress and anxiety in your life and other medical issues including these benefits:
