In Stillwater Hall at Green Gulch Farm

Everyone is welcome

Anxiety and our aversion to it are too often accompanied by reactivity and actions that worsen how we feel. We worry. We criticize and judge ourselves. Such thoughts and the emotions they trigger can become overwhelming, feeling relentless. We suffer.

Our focus for the day will be on our direct experience. We will practice uncovering the natural state of a quieted mind, slowing down enough to see what is actually happening when we describe ourselves as anxious. As we cultivate the opportunity to be with what is truly happening with awareness and clarity, we can respond to difficulties with consciousness, ease and new choices, rather than with reactivity that can make things worse.

This Zen and Mindfulness workshop features guided meditations and related tools that integrate psychotherapeutic strategies. This approach is recognized and supported by leading neuroscience and psychological research. We hope to guide participants in creating their Individual Finding Ease toolbox.

This session is appropriate for those who are new to meditation and for those who are experienced meditators.

Please note that this workshop is similar in content to our Transforming Depression and Anxiety offerings.
