Managing Stress and Deepening Connection during the Holidays: A Mindfulness Guide to Feelings of Calm and Joy 

Whether you look forward to the holidays or find them stressful (or both), this time of year is a wonderful opportunity to implement strategies that can help you find true joy and deeper connection with others.

In this workshop, we’ll look at how the practice of mindfulness helps us reduce stress and navigate challenges and difficult relationships. We’ll practice mindfulness meditation, as we learn to be more present in our lives, while finding calm and clarity within. We’ll take a look at how a mindful approach to the holidays can bring happiness to yourself and those around you.

In our 3 hours together, you’ll learn:

  • why mindfulness is beneficial to our physical and emotional health
  • Instructions on a mindfulness meditation practice that you can practice in your daily life
  • how stress affects us and ways to overcome it
  • the benefits of ‘being’ vs. ‘doing’ as we look for balance in our life
  • what gift giving and compassion have in common
  • how mindfulness helps us manage our emotions and,
  • we’ll look at strategies to help us sleep better – maybe even sleeping through Santa’s trip down the chimney on Christmas night!

Special note: This workshop will focus on additional mindfulness ideas and practices that were not included in the introductory workshops that Elizabeth led in August and October 2019. There will be an introduction to mindfulness meditation included, and all levels of meditation experience are welcome.
