Combining mindfulness meditation, yogic breathing and postures, and specific therapeutic approaches such as cognitive therapy, this one day workshop will examine how to best take care of ourselves by relating to depression and anxiety with compassion. Suitable for both experienced and beginning meditators, the aim of the workshop is for participants to practice identifying, relating to, and interrupting conditionings that are hindrances to feeling better. With encouragement and skillful means to interrupt the mind’s habitual patterns contributing to depression and anxiety, participants can cultivate practices to manage and prevent chronic feelings of unhappiness.
