- Fundamentals of mindfulness
- Connecting to your authentic self
- 3-minute mindful resilience practice used to calm mind and body during the difficult moments in your day
- The Practice of starting your day with mindful clarity (practice done each day for 10-20 minutes while your still in bed)
- Self-kindness and compassion Practice

Based on over thirty year of research these practices have proven effective in reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, and help move us beyond fear, uncertainty, and attachment.
For those of you who are new to mindfulness practice, mindfulness is defined as the capacity to be aware of our moment to moment experience with less judgment, fear and grasping and developing our capacity for curiosity, kindness and gratitude. Instead of unconsciously reacting to life based on past habits and conditioning we learn to consciously respond to life with greater curiosity, openness, acceptance, and kindness. Cultivating mindfulness results in many benefits for mental and physical health, well-being, and happiness.
Registration $30. Scholarships available, for information call Eric @ 269-553-6621 or email StressManagementKazoo@gmail.com
