[Workshop] Guided Imagery for Chronic Pain Management

member events May 02, 2024

This workshop will help you leverage the power of the mind to reduce suffering, both mentally and physically through the practice of mindfulness. Just as we can amplify painful emotions and physical sensations with our minds actively anticipating the worst, we can tame those habits by practicing the attitudes of mindfulness: non-judging, beginner's mind, patience, letting go, and trust. Join us to explore the art of guided imagery, customized to conditions of discomfort we encounter amidst chronic pain. Learn to apply mindfulness using guided imagery, including ways to facilitate a trauma-informed experience of engaging with and holding space for challenging sensations.

Participants will:

  • Understand the origins of guided imagery in a mindfulness program for pain
  • Experience a customized guided imagery practice tailored for chronic pain
  • Learn how to guide a practice in guided imagery as a formal practice, using trauma-informed and sensitive language to preamble and present the practice, and to hold the space.


  • Learning: Guided imagery for chronic pain management
  • Practice: Customized guided imagery formal practice

This workshop is tailored for health professionals, therapists, and mindfulness facilitators aiming to enhance their skills in addressing anxiety, depression, trauma, and chronic pain. It's focused on improving client well-being and self-regulation. Additionally, individuals outside these professions seeking valuable insights into mindful practices will also find the event beneficial. Join us to advance your professional and personal growth through mindfulness.
