Description

We have a wealth of healing potential within us that often goes untapped as we seek outside relief from both physical pain and emotional distress. Research shows the extensive health benefits of practicing mindfulness: from boosting immunity and lowering blood pressure, to alleviating pain, reducing depression and calming anxiety. This session will explore mindfulness, how to practice it, and invite participants to practice mindfulness in simple exercises. We will discover how slowing down and living with deeper awareness of each moment helps transform reactivity and stress into moments of relaxation, ease, and peacefulness---even while facing serious illness.
