Mindfulness: Applied to Self-care and Wellness

Description: Mindfulness is becoming well-known as an aspect of self-care and wellness. This 2-hour experiential workshop will explore the concept of mindfulness and activities that are often helpful in promoting mindfulness, including meditation, Tai Chi and Yoga. It is recommended that participants wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and have no medical conditions that could be adversely affected by mild to moderate exercise.

Connecting Together: A Couples Workshop

Description: This Couples Workshop offers a comfortable and safe place for you and your partner to learn about what keeps couples stuck in difficult patterns. Couples work isn’t about figuring out which partner is at fault or most responsible for the problems affecting the relationship. Couples work is about working together to improve the problems that maintain cyclical patterns. This workshop will provide you with the tools to improve communication and conflict resolution in your relationship. It will also give you resources for deepening your friendship and rekindling the fondness for one another.
