Mindfulness provides us with a means of cultivating greater and more objective awareness of our own emotional landscape, the emotions of others, and of external circumstance. Research evidence suggests that mindfulness has a myriad of positive effects. It has been found to improve general well-being, life satisfaction and health, decrease symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression, improve interpersonal relationships, study and occupational success.
Join us weekly on zoom for a 30-minute mindfulness session on Tuesdays at 11:30am.
- As with a physical group practice, we ask participants to do their best to be on time. We will close the door (i.e. lock) the session after the introductions and overview - typically a few minutes in.
- For the benefit of everyone, all participants other than the Mindfulness leader will be muted throughout the session.
- To promote social connection, participants are encouraged to practice with their video on.
- Participants will be able to provide feedback and ask mindfulness questions at the end of each session via a poll and the Zoom chat function.
- Sessions will not be recorded, though a copy of the chat history will be saved. This is to help us to review answer questions which there was insufficient time to address during the session.
