WINTER 2023 – Wed – Jan 11 to Feb 15 (see below)

MEDITATION FOR MENTAL HEALTH      

(On-line) Practice & Support Group

Develop & Apply Mindfulness Skills to More Effectively   Navigate Challenging Emotions & Cope with Stress, Anxiety & Change

            If you want to learn to practice mindfulness meditation in a supportive group where you can show up as yourself, this may be the group for you!  We will focus on mindfulness practices beginning with an opening meditation followed by a group check-in.  Working with what arises in our sessions, we will discuss our challenges and how we might apply mindfulness to these challenges.  We will also explore key mindfulness teachings such as compassion, acceptance, suffering & working with resistance along with their applications to mental health.   

Ongoing research into the many benefits of mindfulness and mindfulness meditation continue to point to its effectiveness in managing anxiety, depression, stress and other conditions. The power of mindfulness is in knowing what is happening when it’s happening. This awareness enables us to pause, step out of old habits and build new responses. A supportive community is a key factor in creating these changes but your level of participation is always up to you.

The following sessions are offered by Michele Cadotte, MA RP.  Michele has completed the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Teacher Training Intensive Course, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and the Meditation & Psychotherapy Program (Tara Brach).  As a Mindfulness Practitioner of many years, she is passionate about sharing the benefits of the practice.
