Loosen the grips of anxiety, fear, doubt, and judgement by cultivating inner strengths that create a foundation of well-being. Return to a place of contentment and joy – a place where the mind is not so easily “triggered” or hijacked into negative rumination. Learn how to cultivate strengths such as compassion, gratitude, and resiliency and feel more at ease with the inevitable ebbs and flows of life. Uh, too serious a topic for a sunny summer morning? Well, the sub-title of this workshop is “Making Fear Fun.” We will keep it light, informative, and perhaps even mildly entertaining! You will leave the workshop with practical information and easy-to-do mindfulness practices to enrich your life and therefore the lives of all beings you encounter. The workshop includes presentation, discussion, and guided practices that help us lay down positive neural structure and tilt our brain away from what neuroscientists call the “negativity bias” of the brain. Recommend bringing notebook and pen. $39, Registration required through Columbia Gorge Community College.
