Nurturing Mindfulness and Self-Care in the Time of COVID-19

This three-part program will aim to provide participants with knowledge and skills for discovering and experiencing possibilities for greater peace and stillness within, enhancing capacity for improved self-care, and responding more effectively to the stressful demands of living in the time of COVID-19, and beyond. The program is based upon experiencing mindfulness through direct practice, using several core practices from the MBSR program. By practicing mindfulness with teacher support in class, and through readings, audio recordings, and personal practice at home, participants will be better able to recognize and understand how practicing mindfulness can deepen awareness, nurture qualities of kindness, compassion, and wisdom, and build resilience. Strengthening each of these attributes in turn can better equip you to live more happily, and to meet the demands and stressors of life in today’s world more effectively.
