Mindfulness has been recognized as an effective approach to working with physical and psychological distress, improving quality of life for individuals with a wide range of health related issues. For caregivers and clinicians, these practices have been found to reduce the risk for burnout and strengthen compassion.

This workshop will include basic mindfulness-awareness meditation instruction and practice. We will explore the meaning of health and healing and some of the ways that mindfulness practices have been applied as approaches to health promotion and distress management.

Mindfulness Health and Healing is part of the Learn to Live Mindfully series: workshops that offer practical teachings and meditation techniques to help us grow into more mindful and compassionate human beings. These workshops include guided meditation, teaching and group conversation.

Open to everyone!
