Breaking Free from Bad Habits – September 8th and September 21st
Over time we develop ‘bad habits’ to get away from stress. These are habits that take us further away from what’s most important and while they may have a short-term benefit, eventually lead to greater stress. Bad habits often spring from an avoidance of what’s difficult. Freedom from these bad habits involves greater understanding of the cravings and urges that are associated with them. In this webinar we’ll learn to relate to this discomfort with a different quality of awareness, making a radical shift to ‘allowing’ and ‘letting be’. Join us for this 60-minute live session taught by expert mindfulness teachers Cindy Gittleman and Elisha Goldstein.
