Second Saturday of Every Month 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Stress is everywhere and often triggers health problems. Yet becoming anxious or depressed only makes things worse. But, while you cannot change the fact that stress is everywhere, you can learn to respond skillfully to life's challenges and maintain your equilibrium.
During this three hour workshop, you will learn about stress and its impact, the stress cycle, and the relaxation response. Stress management techniques will be outlined. The physiological, psychological, and spiritual benefits of regularly eliciting the relaxation response will be highlighted.
Training is designed to empower you to include stress management and relaxation skills as part of your life and work. Several techniques used to elicit the relaxation response will be taught, including breathing techniques, muscle relaxation, meditation/prayer, and mindfulness.
Biofeedback You will be offered the opportunity to use thermal and/or electrodermal biofeedback instruments during training. These biofeedback instruments increase awareness of internal changes and thereby enhance development of relaxation skills.
For over forty-five years I have successfully taught relaxation techniques to hundreds of individuals of all ages and have conducted numerous workshops in a variety of settings. Experience teaches me that, from the myriad of relaxation techniques available, everyone can learn to relax.
