Anxiety? Procrastination? Stress Eating?
Do you feel stuck in patterns that keep you from living your life?
WHY MINDFULNESS BASED HABIT CHANGE
We often run on auto-pilot, finding ourselves caught in unhealthy habit patterns such as overeating, spending endless time online, getting angry, or stuck in worrying thoughts.
Mindfulness can help us to see our patterns, how they impact us, and give us the space and choice to step out of those habits that do not serve us.
This 6-session course is based on the work of psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher Judson Brewer, MD, PhD., and integrates both ancient wisdom and new learnings from neuroscience. Learn more about Dr. Jud and his innovative approach here or listen to his Ted Talk.
WHAT TO EXPECT
In this interactive class we will learn from ancient wisdom, modern brain science and our own practice and experience to:
- Become aware of habit loops
- Explore the results of our actions
- Tune-in to the effects of healthy, life-sustaining habits
- Discover the freedom of choice
Our time together will include:
- Mindfulness practices
- Individual reflection and journaling
- Short didactic sessions
- Small and large group discussions
Participants also will receive suggestions and resources for daily home practice.
Note: This workshop is appropriate for those who have some experience with mindfulness practice.
