Sustainable Shifts Workshop
Are you aware of habits that cause you trouble and yet you continue to find yourself doing the same old thing? Are there things you want to change but trying to change them just makes them worse? Do you deal with stress in ways that cause more stress to your body?
Through movement, meditation, and discussion this workshop will explore why you find yourself stuck in patterns that don’t serve you and offer tools to make positive shifts and develop helpful habits. Mindfulness allows you to do this work with compassion and resiliency rather than judgement and rigidity. Ultimately, supporting life-long shifts that bring you closer to the way you want to show up in the world. Other side effects of mindfulness include work-life balance, reduced stress, less suffering and a more authentic you.
No prior meditation experience required, just an open-mind and a sense of humour. Wear comfortable clothes.
This workshop is an ever evolving conversation and practice. You’ll experience the power of mindfulness and meditation if it’s your first time joining this exploration or if you are returning to the workshop again and again.
