Anne will be leading a Stress Reduction Workshop at 4pm at Hayes Valley Farm:
This session introduces deep relaxation and meditation practices drawn from ancient healing practices. We will briefly explore several techniques that are simple and comfortable, and that can be done anytime, anywhere. Mindfulness practice is ideal for cultivating greater awareness of the unity of mind and body, as well as of the ways the unconscious thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can undermine emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health. Through techniques such as simple breath awareness and guided meditations, we will further refine our direct experience of relaxed, embodied presence and our mind’s innate capacity to experience joy.
