Managing Stress with Self Compassion Workshop
Saturday, January 19, 2018 9-11am
Counseling office: 304 N. George St., Millersville, PA
In mindfulness meditation, individuals strive to cultivate a greater awareness of the present moment. By increasing their mindfulness, participants in this stress management workshop aim to reduce their overall arousal and emotional reactivity and to gain a deeper sense of calm.
This workshop also adds the component of Self-Compassion in the management of stress. Self-Compassion is being aware in the present moment when we are experiencing moments of fear, confusion, inadequacy and other similar stressors, and responding to those feelings with kindness and understanding. This practice helps in letting self-instilled stressors go, and brings you kindly to focus on the present moments.
In this workshop you will learn/experience:
-How to make stress your ally
-What is lovingkindness and participate in a lovingkindness meditation
-Breathing Space Meditation
-Gratitude, the antidote for stress
-How to cultivate self-appreciation
Each session will be a combination of practice, lecture, and group discussion. Each session is taught in a supportive environment with no more than 15 people.
