About the Event

 

 

Drop-in Meditation Session: Getting Unstuck with Emotional Agility

 led by Joel Grow, Ph.D.

 

CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.

About the Session 

All humans have an inner stream of emotions and thoughts that include criticism, doubt, and fear; That’s just our minds trying to anticipate and solve problems. When we get hooked by these experiences, many of us use strategies of ignoring or suppressing them, which usually has a counterproductive effect. Come learn practices that strengthen our emotional agility, our ability to approach inner experiences in a mindful and productive way
