Stress, feeling emotionally overwhelmed, and pain are uninvited guests in our daily lives. However, they are part of the human condition. Stress and pain may have you feeling irritable, tense, depressed, or anxious, which negatively impacts your entire quality of life. The KEY to regaining balance is responding to these stressors with mindful, non-judgmental awareness. Sound impossible? Research has shown that mindfulness-based approaches to healing the body and mind are highly effective and can even change our brain. Mindfulness meditation has proven to help individuals reduce stress, pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and cravings, and can increase overall quality of life and well-being. The Center for Mindfulness describes the practice as “a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, a way of doing something for yourself that no one else can do for you — consciously and systematically working with your own stress, pain, illness, and the challenges and demands of everyday life.” Our Mindfulness-Based Group Therapy will guide you to well-being by utilizing psychoeducation, mindfulness meditation, yoga, and group discussion. Group members are highly encouraged to enhance their experience by implementing their own consistent practice of mindfulness. The group handles a wide range of issues from sexuality, depression, anxiety, and even issues with finding independence or purpose. The group provides a safe and healing environment for group participants to learn about and improve their own tools for creating mindfulness in their daily lives.
