Mindfulness for Stress Workshop 

Sunday April 7, 4-6pm
@ Crossroads UMC

If you are new to mindfulness or need a refresher course this workshop will equip you to integrate mindfulness as a tool to address stress in everyday life and relationships.

Numerous reputable scientific studies, including several conducted by Harvard Medical School (see below) have shown that regular mindfulness meditation can reduce the stress and anxiety in your life as well as other emotional and physical problems.

Many people have reported how mindfulness has given them a tool to address stress and anxiety and improve the quality of their daily lives.

"Scientists and therapists (cognitive behavioral therapy) have discovered the benefits of using mindfulness meditation to:
relieve stress
manage heart disease
high blood pressure
chronic pain
sleep problems
gastrointestinal difficulties
treat mood problems
help prevent depressive episode relapse" Harvard Medical School Special Report - Stress Management - page 28

Bob Lawrence is a seasoned mindfulness meditation practitioner who has recently taught a number of mindfulness stress reduction classes that introduce mindfulness and demonstrate the benefits of regular meditation practice. Bob has completed the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course (University of Massachusetts Medical Center-Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn) and integrates mindfulness into his commute, profession and relationships. Bob very much enjoys sharing his experience with the "miracle of mindfulness" and showing the positive influence that learning these skills can have on all of our lives.
