  • Mindfulness Practice (Challenge): Delving into mindfulness exercises designed to address challenges, followed by layered inquiry and reflection.
  • Listening Practice: Focusing on Resistance vs. Acceptance, Permanence vs. Impermanence, and the Personal vs. Impersonal.Come prepared to share your experiences, engage in meaningful discussions, and learn from the diverse experiences of others.
  • 3 min Responsive Breathing Space + Inquiry: Skillful responding – let it be, let it go, action.

This workshop is tailored for health professionals, therapists, and mindfulness facilitators aiming to enhance their skills in addressing anxiety, depression, trauma, and chronic pain.
