Mindfulness and self-compassion practices are proven to promote well-being!  Research has shown that mindfulness and self-compassion training can significantly improve job and life satisfaction, relationships, stress resilience, and creativity and focus.  This 8-week course is based on the research and core components of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) developed by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer.

This course involves eight weekly group learning classes of 1.5 hours each, with one optional (but highly encouraged!) 4-hour retreat.  Each class includes foundational, science-based information on mindfulness and self-compassion, experiential mindfulness and self-compassion exercises, reflective activities, and class discussion.   Click this link to register!

By the end of this 8-week course, participants will be able to:

Understand how chronic stress impacts wellbeing.

Utilize mindfulness and self-compassion techniques as both preventative and responsive measures for coping with stress.

Recognize helpful and unhelpful thinking patterns and apply mindfulness, self-regulation, and purpose-driven coping strategies.

Be more present, compassionate and engaged in relationships in ways that promote well-being.  

Demonstrate change regarding mindfulness and stress using pre- and post-training measures.

Classes are being offered through the College of Eastern Idaho in Idaho Falls.  Weekly classes are held of Thursday evenings, 6:30-8:00 PM, September 6 - November 1, 2018 (there will be no class on Thursday, October 11).
