When confronted with stress, our bodies and minds react by going into fight-or-flight response. Our natural instinct is to turn away, self-protect and distract from difficult emotions. In this workshop, we will draw from mindfulness principles and practices to explore alternative responses. Mindfulness offers tools to help us stay present with difficult emotions, decrease our reactivity, and make choices that support our wellbeing. We will explore approaches to help us build resilience, transform our difficulties and create new pathways for self-care.
