FROM STRESS TO WELLBEING
8-week course starting on Wednesday September 4, 2019
from 7:30 to 9 pm.
This course addressess both what we want (wellbeing)
and what we wish to avoid (stress).
PRESSURE IS INEVITABLE, BUT STRESS IS OPTIONAL…

We will learn how we often turn pressure into stress, and how we can avoid doing that. We will practice a basic 5-minute meditation that can be done anywhere.
We will also become familiar with three kinds of meditation:

1. Breath Meditation
2. Positivity Meditation (including Loving Kindness meditation)
3. Choiceless Awareness (Observing thoughts, emotions, and sensations as they come and go).

MINDFULNESS helps reduce the time our minds spend wandering.
With mindfulness, we avoid following the wandering mind around.
Mind-Wandering takes us away from the task at hand, often toward negative possibilities. 

Each session will include one or two practice periods, time for questions and sharing, and time for discussing problems that come up.

Q/A: I will have to miss one session. Should I still take the course?

Not everyone manages to attend all 8 sessions! Illness, work and family obligations often get in the way. We deal with this by having a summry of each session as a handout. There is often a review as well.

Is there still room in the course? Yes. When the course is full, it will be announced prominently on this page.

English or French? The course is bilingual. Each person speaks in her language of choice, and the teaching is in both languages. If after the first session you find that it does not work for you because of language issues, your deposit is refunded.

Please sign up early! It is not rare to get half a dozen requests during the last week.This makes things difficult, as space is limited. Please send a 100 dollar deposit to:
