None of us is immune to the stress, uncertainty and sadness that has come with the turbulence of 2020. Stress can show up in various ways - emotionally, mentally, physically, and behaviourally. In these two powerful sessions, you will learn how to foster a Mindset of peace, ease and calm. As well, you will bolster your well-being and effectiveness with mindfulness insights and activities specifically designed to bring the body into calm, the mind into focus and the collective whole toward a state of equanimity.

The Mind, Stress & Your Mind(set)
