We often try to think our way out of anxiety, but how well does that seem to work?

Fortunately, mindfulness can be a big help.

In this workshop, we’ll build a safe classroom learning community to explore ways that mindfulness can help to:

  • Reduce baseline levels of anxiety
  • Recover from anxiety-provoking events
  • Resist the tendency to aggravate our anxiety with ruminative thinking
  • Explore ways of meeting anxiety with patience, curiosity and acceptance

Look forward to thoughtful framing around how to live with anxiety more kindly and wisely. We’ll explore and discuss mindfulness exercises for grounding, self-kindness, directing attention more wisely, and cultivating an open and curious approach to the doings of the mind. You’ll leave with a deeper toolkit of approaches to the anxious mind.

  • Supportive guided meditations
  • Mindful journaling practices (please bring a notebook & pen or pencil)
  • Small and large group discussion
  • Practical tools for difficult anxiety moments in everyday life

“Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.”
Pema Chödrön, Buddhist nun and meditation teacher

Please note that this workshop is aimed at practicing with regular anxiety defined as a “a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.” Should you suffer from psychiatric level anxiety, defined as “a nervous disorder characterized by a state of excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behavior or panic attacks” we recommend consulting with a mental health professional before signing up for this course.
