Change how you manage stress with a Mindfulness practice

Would you like to reduce the impact of stress in your daily life? Do you want to be more present? Mindful Living for Stress Management is for anyone who wants to learn mindfulness or deepen their meditation practice.

This 8-week psycho-educational group intervention is based on the evidence-based Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Throughout the course, we will practice mindfulness together and explore how it affects us and our day-to-day lives. 

A recent Statistics Canada survey revealed that over 4.1 million people, representing 21.2% of all employed Canadians, experience high or very high levels of work-related stress. This included stress relating to heavy workload and balancing work and personal life.

Mindful Living for Stress Management can help you learn to engage in present-moment awareness, which is known to help manage stress, anxiety, pain, and other challenges.  

You will learn to: 

  • practice mindfulness and to be present with your experience 
  • support the integration of learning into your daily life 
  • form healthy habits and maintain ongoing mindfulness practice
