Bringing Calm and Focus to Overwhelming Situations – August 9th and August 24th

Whether we’re at home or at work, life gets overwhelming. This often leads us into regular behaviors of coping that often aren’t very effective (ie. distraction, wasting time, lashing out, shutting down, drinking, smoking, etc.) In this webinar we’ll explore individual stress factors and explore ways that we can stay with the intensity of feelings that come up during overwhelming situations by learning to recognize and sit with them, rather than reacting on automatic pilot or needing to get rid of these feelings. Join us for this 60-minute live session taught by expert mindfulness teachers Cindy Gittleman and Elisha Goldstein.
