Stressing Mindfully – 4 Day Workshop
April 7 @ 10:00 am - April 28 @ 1:00 pm
STRESS – IT’S NOT THE LOAD THAT BREAKS YOU DOWN, IT IS THE WAY YOU CARRY IT – LOU HOLTZ
If we ask you,”how do you know if you are stressed?”, what would you tell us? Would you be talking of it as an emotion? a block? exhaustion? stuckness? impulsive actions or maybe its complete inaction. Maybe your reaction is completely different from all of the above.
The truth is irrespective of what you have defined stress as, its the same internal reaction for all of us – the release of cortisol and adrenaline, that puts us in an overdrive. The truth also is “Stress does not vanish when we work on it, we simply get better at handling Stress when we work on it”
Almost 40 years of research on stress reduction through Mindfulness by experts like John-Kabat-Zinn and teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, Allan Waters, Jack Kornfield to name a few, shows that – learning to pause , attending to the present moment, expanding our perceptions of what is our reality and consistent practice to train the brain to be in observation of self and the world around us significantly helps in reduction of Stress.
