Mindfulness and Emotional Wellness
with Molly De Shong, MEd.Counselling and Lauchlan Learned, MSW
Lauchlan Learned and Molly De Shong will lead Mindfulness and Emotional Wellness, an 8-session program based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). We’ll explore how we find ourselves caught in difficult patterns of thinking and behaviour that can lead to stress, self-criticism, depression, addiction, and other challenges. We’ll discover how the evidence-based practices of MBSR and MBCT help strengthen stability of mind and body, self-compassion, perspective, and emotional resilience.
Open to all; no mindfulness experience necessary. In a relaxed group atmosphere, we’ll combine mindfulness practices of body, mind, and interpersonal communication with discussion and exercises.
Tuesdays, September 22 – November 3 from 6-8 pm (plus half-day Saturday, October 24, 9am-12pm)
$400. includes tax, 8 sessions, handouts and CD. Limited scholarships available.
Location: Sobey Building, 4th Floor, Saint Mary’s University in Halifax
