Ask the Anxiety and OCD Experts: Free Q&A Discussion on February 7, 2019
Mindfulness for Stress Reduction taught by Mary Davin, M.A.
Six Thursday Evenings: Offered intermittently; Contact Mary Davin for more info.
Mindfulness is our innate capacity to flexibly, fluidly pay attention from moment-to-moment. Learn to tune into the vividness and vitality of RIGHT NOW rather than endlessly replaying the past or worrying about the future.
Research has overwhelmingly shown that a lack of grounding in the “here and now” can be a significant contributing factor for many anxiety disorders and depression. While not a substitute for therapy, mindfulness practice can be a valuable adjunct to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It is also extremely useful for anyone wishing to become more awake in and connected to her life.
You will learn mindfulness techniques that train the mind and body to be: present, relaxed, open, reflective, and responsive to your always-changing experience of life. While there is no “right” way to practice mindfulness, this class will establish guidelines, provide support, encourage discussion, and offer many opportunities to experience the profound benefits of embracing the present.
Among the many practices participants will explore in the course are: mindfulness meditation, mindful eating, body scan, mindful listening, and a variety of embodiment practices involving movement and stillness intertwined.
This is not group therapy. No personal disclosure is required. No previous experience is necessary.
