It is not too late to join our Mindfulness Group!! Mindfulness refers to the ability to maintain awareness of the present moment with acceptance and without judgment. Mindfulness helps strengthen the “muscle” in the brain that helps us focus our attention to the present moment (rather than ruminating on the past or worrying about the future). Mindfulness can be beneficial in reducing dissociation, alleviating anxiety and depression, reducing chronic pain, and improving your focus and concentration. Mindfulness helps us become more aware of our emotions and our needs. In addition to mindfulness, this group helps participants gain coping skills to recognize, regulate, validate, tolerate, and appropriately respond to strong emotions with self-compassion as well as assertive communication skills. The open group is designed as weekly 60-minute sessions.
