Mindfulness-Based Habit Change - Live Online
Anxiety? Procrastination? Stress Eating?
Do you feel stuck in patterns that keep you from living your life?
In the chaos of our everyday lives, we often run on auto-pilot finding ourselves caught in unhealthy habit patterns such as overeating, spending endless time online, getting angry or stuck in worrying thoughts.
This 6-session course is based on the work of psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher Judson Brewer, MD, PhD., and integrates both ancient wisdom and new learnings from neuroscience. Learn more about Dr Jud and his innovative program here.
Mindfulness-Based Habit Change introduces you to a step-by-step approach:
- Identifying triggers and becoming aware of our habit loops
- Bringing mindfulness to our experience to explore the results of our actions
- Tuning-in to the effects of healthy, life-sustaining habits
- Discovering freedom of choice based on our experience
Our time together will be interactive, with discussion and breakout groups, journaling, meditations, readings, goal setting and reflections. Participants will receive materials for daily home practice including guided meditations, articles, reflections, journal prompts and links to other videos. We will also ask that participants access the free version of one of three of Dr. Brewer's Habit Change apps. Purchase of the apps is welcome, but is not required. Participants can learn more about the apps here.
