"Mindful Movement" on Zoom. 45-minute practice sessions. Tuesdays, October 19 - November 23 from 12:15-1pm.  Allow yourself to be guided through a variety of types of gentle mindful movement.  No experience required and chair modifications will be provided if needed.  You'll need to be able to participate in a space big enough to allow you to stretch your arms both straight in front of you, and out to the sides.  If possible for you to do some lying-down stretches, space for a yoga mat will also be helpful.

"Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)" on Zoom.  An 8 week program on Wednesdays, October 27 - December 22.  One half day retreat on Saturday, December 4 (9am-1pm).  Note: no class on Wednesday, December 15.  6:30-9:00pm.  Orientation required for all participants who've never participated in a mindfulness program before on Wednesday, October 20 from 6:30-7:30pm. -   As featured on Oprah's SuperSoul Series, CNN, CBS 60 Minutes, ABC's Chronicle, NBC Dateline, and PBS Documentary with Bill Boyers: Scientific research shows that this particular mindfulness program can help with:

  • You suspect (or know!) that quality of your life suffers because your mind is so often worrying about the future or re-hashing conversations or events of the past;
  • You react in ways you wish you didn't, either at home or work or both;
  • You struggle with anxiety or depression or the natural fears or feelings of overwhelm related to a difficult diagnosis;
  • You struggle with physical health concerns, especially (but not limited to) high blood pressure, irritable bowel, chronic pain, insomnia, diabetes management;
  • You simply want more times of feeling centered, content or enthusiastic about life

Don't forget, you can always access 5 and 10 minute mindfulness recordings here.
