Looking for a natural way to improve your mental health and quality of life?
Do you feel like you need a different way to deal with stress?
Interested in understanding better how your mind and body work together?
Mindfulness is intentionally focusing on the present moment. This is developed through mindfulness meditation practices, which help us to approach life with curiosity, a non-judging attitude, and compassion for ourselves and others.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is a program for people that want to take charge of their lives and learn to relate directly to whatever is happening in their life. Similar programs have assisted people with a variety of conditions and concerns:
Stress: including work, school, family, financial, illness, and life transitions.
Medical conditions: including chronic illness or pain, high blood pressure, heart disease, gastrointestinal issues, and cancer.
Psychological distress: including anxiety, panic, depression, fatigue, attention deficits, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.
This group will be on Mondays at 3:30pm to 5:00pm. It will be a eight week course from March 10 - April 28.
Each week we will practice in-session mindfulness exercises, guided instruction will be provided for mindfulness practices that will be practiced at home, and a group discussion will be lead to discuss difficulties and progress.
Groups will be held at the Institute of Psychiatry in the 5-South Outpatient Clinic.
The program is meant to be a complement to traditional medical care and isn't considered a replacement.
