Meditation is a powerful tool to grow your resilience. And exploring it with others reminds us that we are not alone on this journey, especially during such isolating times. In this course you'll discover mindful movements and stillness practices that suit your temperament, be invited to self-reflect, share with others, and grow in your ability to befriend yourself through some big feelings without toxic positivity.
Together, we'll explore the key elements of resilience and find techniques that work best for us. We’ll cultivate sensitivity and compassion to recognize our own patterns and see to how the stresses of our times show up differently for each of us.
Mindful movement and meditation beginners are welcome. Be sure to have a notebook handy for times of self-reflection. Our classes are intended to be a complement to, but not a replacement for, professional mental health support.
What the Course Includes:
Every week for the first four weeks, attend live classes virtually. These are interactive classes with opportunities for questions/feedback and connection with your instructor and classmates. Live classes will be recorded and available online afterwards if you are unable to make the class time.
You will also have the opportunity to practice along with specially created videos to review and build on your knowledge. You can practice with these additional three lessons once or several times, and all the videos across all seven lessons (this includes recordings of livestreams) are yours to keep for a year.
A computer or tablet and internet connection are required to participate. A webcam and microphone are recommended in order to interact with the teacher during Livestreams. The online platform is very user-friendly, and two days before your course begins we will provide you with instructions for getting started.
