The holidays are a season that is cherished and dread often in equal measure :) The busyness of the season, personal and family expectations and a yearning for joy, closeness and celebration sometimes lead to overdoing and weariness. The Mindfulness for the Holidays Workshop is designed as a time to relax, slow down and spend two hours caring for yourself learning and experiencing practical tools and resources to help you find more calmness and peace to guide you through the holidays and the new year. We will have a special handout on Mindfulness for the Holidays for you to take with you as well as some herbal teas available for nurture in mind, body and soul. Numerous scientific studies, including several conducted by Harvard Medical School have shown that regular mindfulness meditation can help reduce the stress and anxiety in your life and other medical issues including these benefits: "Scientists and therapists (cognitive behavioral therapy) have discovered the benefits of using mindfulness meditation to: relieve stress manage heart disease high blood pressure chronic pain sleep problems gastrointestinal difficulties treat mood problems help prevent depressive episode relapse" Harvard Medical School Special Report - Stress Management - page 28 There is no charge for the workshop as it is a gift of service from the Imagine community trusting you might offer an act of service and the world is change one person, family and community at a time!
