Anxiety is prevalent, it’s pervasive, it’s something that most of us deal with daily on some level.

The seeds of anxiety are thoughts, the fertilizer is a story, usually about something that hasn’t yet occurred. How we skillfully work with the mind, and how we include the body in the process is pivotal to quelling anxiety when it is present, and before it wreaks havoc.

Mindfulness of the mind and mindfulness of the body are equally important. We will mine both as opportunities to prevent anxiety from taking root, as well as lessen the severity when it does.

Our day will include mindfulness and somatic practices while seated, while walking and while lying down in a restorative posture.

Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. Continuing Education (CE) credit available. See below for attendance requirements and more information.
