Feeling overwhelmed by emotions? Challenged by your relationships? Would you like to understand your feelings more fully?
By cultivating mindfulness and compassion, we’re able to know our emotions more fully, respond to strong emotions more wisely, and cultivate and strengthen positive emotions — all of which builds resilience.
This workshop will include:
- A 22-page workbook with exercises and resources for building your resilience
- Supportive guided meditations
- Mindful journaling practices (please bring a notebook & pen or pencil)
- Small and large group discussion
- Practical tools for difficult moments in everyday life
In this three hour participatory workshop, you’ll learn techniques to help you recognize and respond to difficult emotions with both mindfulness and compassion. Explore a variety of practices, learning simple tools to reduce stress and anxiety, increase joy, and weather life’s difficulties with greater ease.
You’ll learn to:
- Know your emotions more fully
- Respond to strong emotions more wisely
- Cultivate and strengthen positive emotions
I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning tools to help them respond to the challenges and vagaries of daily life more consciously and deliberately. I plan to take advantage of many more Mindfulness Northwest offerings.
