There are many circumstances over which we don’t have control. However, with understanding, awareness, and practice, we have a surprising amount of agency over our reactions and the overall experience. This three-part series of 1-hour online workshops includes mind and body-based exercises to help you better understand your experience of situations which create agitation, upset, and a sense that there is something wrong. You will learn practices that help restore a sense of acceptance and being okay in the midst of difficulty.

Workshop 1: Supportive Practice to Restore Calm
Workshop 2: Supportive Practice to Stabilize Mood
Workshop 3: Supportive Practice for Focus
