Join SIF and the Cambridge Health Alliance Center for Mindfulness and Compassion for an 8-week guided exploration of mindfulness. This series has been custom-designed for SIF’s nonprofit network and explores how mindfulness can support with managing stress and cultivating self-compassion. Each session will consist of a combination of learning about core tenets of mindfulness, experiential practice, and large and small group reflection. Topics covered will include: present-moment awareness, values-driven alignment, the mind-body connection, kindness and self-compassion, and personalized action plans. Alongside class instruction and practice, the instructor will provide suggestions for home practice to help participants to slowly integrate mindfulness into their routines in lasting ways. The goal is for participants to experience mindfulness in a hands-on way that allows them to introduce it into their own daily life and work in ways that are meaningful to them.
Participants are invited to join individually or with a small group from your organization. This series is appropriate for those who are new to mindfulness as well as those looking to deepen their experience. Participants from last year’s mindfulness program are welcome to return and can expect this series to include some familiar and some new content.
Instructor: Dr. Stephanie Palacios
