Maintaining balance and inner calm can seem hard to grasp, especially when faced with shifts in seasons and routines. As we transition to autumn and a fresh school year, mindfulness offers the chance to re-establish equilibrium, reset and refocus. Explore eM Life’s upcoming live programs to rejuvenate your well-being today.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Training (MBCT) – September 12
When we are presented with difficult situations or have difficult thoughts, they can spiral into a dark cloud impacting our everyday life. The MBCT program, which is based on cognitive behavioral therapy principles, has been proven to help you build skills to cultivate positive feelings, thoughts, and behaviors to help prevent depression or a relapse of depression. Join us for this 16-session live program (plus a retreat) taught by expert mindfulness teacher Elaine Smookler.

Mindful Leadership Series – September 13
Managing shifting priorities in a constantly changing work environment is a common challenge facing leaders in the workplace. With the Mindful Leadership Program, you will learn to use mindfulness to show up authentically and lead effectively in a diverse environment. This program will help you increase self-awareness and self-regulation, improve collaboration and problem-solving, cultivate an inclusive environment, and manage challenging situations with more grace and ease.

Stop Reacting and Start Responding – September 12 and 27
Mindfulness techniques forge a strong mind-body connection, shifting us from instinctive reactions to thoughtful responses. By staying present in a non-judgmental way, we attune to our body’s signals and emotions. This awareness helps us create space between triggers and reactions, empowering intentional choices. This 60-minute webinar taught by expert mindfulness teachers Cindy Gittleman and Elisha Goldstein teaches mindfulness practices like body scanning and desk yoga to connect with the body and settle the mind.
