Managing Mood With Mindfulness

4 weekly live online group sessions
These sessions teach the neuroscience, psychology and mindfulness skills helpful for reducing the symptoms and root causes of stress, depression and anxiety.

A new understanding of emotional suffering

When we feel stressed we focus on negative thoughts and feelings. This negative focus is often self-fulfilling because it influences how we perceive and engage with the world. And yet it is possible to work with our attention in a different way that frees us from this struggle with negative thoughts. It is possible to influence the mental conditions and neuro-chemistry in which all thoughts, emotions and sensations are formed and connected.

By cultivating a gentle curious attitude of attention to whatever arises, even stressful thoughts and emotions, we can create healthy mental conditions which reduce suffering, enliven neutral moments and enhance pleasant moments.

This is a skill that can be strengthened in just minutes a day.
