NEW! PEACE + POSITIVITY WORKSHOPS
Peace + Positivity: Gratitude
What is the value of a ‘like’ on Facebook when we draw the greatest fulfillment from our family, friends, community, and ourselves?
In a trusting, safe space, we will learn and talk about gratitude—the science, benefits, our experiences—and engage in interactive discussion and activities.
Peace + Positivity: Self-Compassion
How is it that we blame ourselves for things that aren’t even in our control? We criticize ourselves for things we’ve said or done, fully aware that we would never treat another so harshly. This new workshop will focus on the importance of self-compassion—being kinder to and less judgmental of ourselves.
WORKSHOPS I HAVE RUN IN THE PAST… KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THEM AGAIN SOON!
The Write Balance
This workshop uses writing as a vehicle for self-expression and exploration. Writing about meaningful issues and experiences has been scientifically proven to be good for both your physical health and emotional well-being. NO writing experience necessary.
The Science & Strategies of Well-Being
What brings certain people happiness and success? During this interactive workshop, we will explore the scientific study of human flourishing, also known as Positive Psychology, engage in discussion about the premises that foster happiness, and embark on the practices that can bring greater joy and meaning to our lives.
The Peaceful Balance
No matter the age, our technology-laden lives are filled with stress and anxiety. This interactive workshop provides a tool-kit of stress-reducing and balance-enhancing life skills for teens, teaching them strategies to cultivate greater calm, resilience, self-compassion and effective communication.
The Mindful Balance
Focusing our attention on the breath and the sensations we are experiencing in the present moment is the root of mindfulness and meditation. This workshop is an opportunity to learn an array of mindfulness practices—such as breathing, eating, walking and loving-kindness meditation—as well as the significance of awareness, and its impact on thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
