Most of us live stress filled lives. The truth is we always have stress and the challenge is how to deal with it in the most holistic way. Mindfulness is gaining significant recognition from both the medical field and science as a way to reduce stress and improve quality of life.
The beauty of mindfulness practices is that they are very practical and easily incorporated into daily life. Although mindfulness requires some “formal” time to sit with the practice, the real gift is in the application of in those moments when we feel overwhelmed, depressed, anxious and impatient. This six week class is based upon the evidence based work of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn (U Mass Medical Center)
http://www.umassmed.edu/cfm/stress-reduction/ Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction tools and skills are designed to help you to access and strengthen your natural capacity to actively engage in caring for yourself and find greater ease, self-awareness, and peace of mind.
There is no charge for the class as it is a gift of the Imagine community and the space is donated by Crossroads UMC.
All are welcome without discrimination.
