Mindfulness for Stress & Anxiety at Home: Finding Calm in Uncertain Times
A 6-Week Online Group
Mindfulness is being fully in the present moment with acceptance of your experience. It means to take a step back and be the observer of your mind, rather than getting caught up in your worries.
In this group, Dr. Ellis Edmunds and Elana Morgulis, MFT will lead the group through mindfulness meditation exercises that have been proven to calm anxiety and improve well-being. These exercises are simple, effective, and easy to practice.
Mindfulness can help:
Reduce stress so you can have more clarity of mind
Let go of obsessive thoughts so you can sleep peacefully at night
Be more accepting and compassionate to yourself
Learn to slow down so you can decrease job burn-out
Know your emotions better which can improve relationships
Calm anxiety so you can feel more joy and ease
Thursdays 5:30pm – 7pm. 6 Week Group. $25-50 per group (sliding scale available). Starts January 21st. Online on Zoom.
