Layering stresses from your personal and professional life on top of things like the 24/7 news cycle and political upheaval can put your body in a constant state of red-alert. The instinctual survival response can be helpful if you’re being chased by a tiger, but not if you’re trying to get dinner on the table! Learn to check in with your body to identify what causes you stress, then use practical techniques to reduce your tension on a regular basis. Decades of research show that this 8-week course makes structural changes in the brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy, and compassion, measurably reducing stress in just eight weeks. And who doesn’t want that?
This course is for you if you:
-want to take your mindfulness practice deeper
-desire to have a deeper connection to your body
-are interested in showing up to the world calm and empowered
