Mindfulness and stress control

Main deliverable: Developing the ability to cope more effectively with short-term and long-term stressful situations.

By practicing mindfulness, we are learning how to rely on our inner resources, we develop understanding, patience, compassion and gain insight about the importance of the connection between our body and mind. We practice better acceptance of our emotions and ways which can help in taking better care of ourselves.

Mindfulness’s experiential approach makes it possible to become aware of our “bad habits”, unpleasant emotions, situations that stress us and our usual reactions to stress. By exploring these phenomena we find new ways of reacting and changing our “rooted” habits and reactions and learning how to embrace the diversity of our emotions and moods without being controlled or overwhelmed by them.

This workshop is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program made by Jon Kabat Zinn – founder of 8 weeks MBSR program.
