Every day, our minds gets bombarded by demands for our attention. Keeping an open heart—to our loved ones and to God—gets harder and harder the more our attention is stretched. How can we find rest and cultivate receptivity in ourselves while living in a restless world that values constant progress, profit, and production?
Keith Miller, a local psychotherapist specializing in relationships and the treatment of stress, will lead a two-hour seminar. He will cover the spiritual and scientifically-proven benefits of mindfulness-based habits which can have a dramatic positive impact on our closest relationships.
Open to all people regardless of relationship status. Come solo or with your partner or spouse.
Key areas of focus of this lively and engaging seminar will be:
• How changing our attitude toward stress can override our normal response of feeling more guarded and protective.
• Why stress and fear can disconnect us from our heart, make us feel like we’ve lost our mind, or deaden our spirit…and how to feel centered and confident when this happens.
• How to have compassion and acceptance for ourselves that radiates effortlessly toward others.
Refreshments will be provided and childcare will be available.
Childcare (up to 5th Grade): $15 per family
