This 4- week workshop introduces individuals to mindfulness practices that they can build upon over the four sessions. This program will help participants to gradually feel more balanced and present in their lives.
During this program you will learn:
- To ride the wave of emotions rather than get stuck in reactivity and survival mode
- Breathing skills to help focus thie mind and increase awareness of the body, creating an overall sense of calm
- How to build even more resilience by learning to sit with emotions
- Strategies to decrease stress and develop a self-care action plan
With our in-person workshops suspended as a result of COVID-19, we will be offering the complete workshop in a virtual group setting. This workshop will be held via and online teleconferencing network called OTN.
A “VIRTUAL” Classroom
Workshops will be delivered using a password with a secure online videoconferencing tool to create interactive sessions. Participants will be able to interact with the facilitators and other members of the group. They can choose whether to be on camera.
A personal computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone with Internet access is required to connect to the workshop. If you are using a computer that does not have a microphone built in, then you will need a microphone or headset.
A week prior to the workshop, instructions will be sent on how to join the group. There is no cost to attend. Registration is required and space is limited.
The Mindful Awareness Stabilization Training Program was developed by St Michael’s Hospital and is sponsored by the Bell Mental Health Foundation.
