Meditation and Stress-Reduction Practices for Everyone
This course meets on Tuesdays via Zoom. November 30, December 7, and December 14, 2021, 7:00PM-8:15PM Eastern Time.
As the nights grow long, this time of year is perfect for a meditation and stress-reduction course. For those who are completely new to these practices and those who already have experience — all are invited to sign up. On Tuesday nights for three weeks, we will gather together live on Zoom for guided meditation, simple ways to reduce stress, and important tips for handling the holiday season with greater ease.
The fall temperatures invite us into cozy evenings. There are many ways to celebrate this time of year, and there are additional pressures with the holidays, end of year, and colder temperatures. Join Heidi Spear to learn evidence-based, simple methods for calming down, feeling gratitude, and increasing immunity through mindfulness techniques. Meditation and other stress-relieving tools can reduce the heart rate, promote better sleep, enhance mental clarity, warm the heart, and so much more.
It takes 21 days to create a new habit, and this three-week course gives you the opportunity to do just that. Through lecture, guided experience, and time for Q&A, you will learn:
- Several types of meditation for relaxation, better health, self-compassion
- Quick, effective stress-relieving practices
- Breathwork to calm the nervous system, restore a healthy heart rate, and use greater lung capacity
- Techniques to improve sleep, digestion, mental focus, and immunity
- And more
After each class, you will receive worksheets that review the teachings and provide inspiration.
Whether you want to have a clear mind and open heart for the holidays, gain clarity about your life path, or improve your health, this is the course for you. Plus, you will see that this feels good — you will be glad you took this time for yourself, you deserve it.
