Community Webinar: Tapping the Power of Mindfulness to Navigate Stress
January 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Navigating the loss of a spouse, a parent, a sibling, or anyone else in our inner circle creates stress on many levels. Whether expected or unexpected, a loss can create waves of powerful emotion: shock and denial, anger and guilt, sadness and regret. At the same time, the loss may have a significant impact on our day-to-day lives, altering family dynamics and parenting roles, adding new financial and household responsibilities, and impacting our social relationships and support networks.
It’s not surprising that the loss of a spouse or loved one are ranked among life’s most stressful experiences. In this webinar, we will explore the power of mindfulness to help us navigate all kinds of stress, from day-to-day annoyances to the deeper pain of loss.
