A six-week live online class suitable for beginners or people wishing to refresh their mindfulness practice.
These have been some of the most stressful times in recent history. Understanding the science of stress helps to transform the depleting, isolating and damaging stress cycles into opportunities of growth, connection and resilience. Mindfulness tools offer simple ways to change and strengthen the protective neural pathways to calm, connect and befriend in these extraordinarily challenging times. The class emphasis will be on cultivating a compassionate and kind response to meet life with wisdom and understanding instead of judgment and anxiety.
This 6-week class meets once a week online and live for 2 hours. It is based on the 8-week MBSR curriculum created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
The dates for the 6-week class are as follows:
- Tuesdays: 7 pm – 9 pm US Central Time starting January 12, 2021. Class dates: 1/12, 1/19, 1/26, 2/2, 2/9, 2/16
- Saturdays: 10 am – 12 pm US Central Time starting January 16, 2021. Class dates: 1/16, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6, 2/13, 2/20
Cost: $199. Six-week courses typically cost $300 but are currently offered at a reduced cost due to the financial challenges many people are facing. If you need further financial assistance, I am happy to hear from you and accommodate your needs.
12 hours of CEUs are available for Social Workers for both classes for an additional fee of $25. Other professionals may also be eligible for CEUs. Please contact Geeta for details.
If you have significant physical or mental health issues, please email us in advance so we can help you determine if this class is a good fit for you.
Class size will be limited to allow for a more intimate interaction to mimic in-person classes.
Online meeting information will be provided upon completion of registration. We currently use the Zoom service.
