In our two upcoming MBSR trainings, we will use the nourishing Womb of Winter and the renewal energies of the New Year to recognize and liberate ourselves from the patterns that do not serve us, learn ways to calm the mind and heart and to deal better with stress.
Being a migrant woman and entrepreneur requires strength, resilience and adaptability. Migrant women have all these. Yet adapting to and surviving in a new culture and in a new business culture creates stress which might exceed the inner resources and lead at times to burnout. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program aims to train the mind to be awake and calm, increase body awareness and provide mindful and skillful ways to deal with life’s difficulties and enjoy its everyday gifts/offerings. We will do these through movement, meditation, mini-lectures, interactive activities, home practice and sharing of our experiences in the group. Course requires commitment to attendance and to home practices, which will be interesting and joyful daily practices up to 45 min.
