This event is all about decompressing before the holidays and learning new stress management techniques that will keep us grounded in stressful situations.
In this two hour event we'll hear from practitioners who will give us tools and strategies to effectively manage stress. There will be a panel discussion with Q&A led by Melanie Yost, LCSW (Owner, Be Well Solutions) and Tricia Walsh, LCSW (Owner, Affinity Therapy). Topics will include impacts of chronic stress on our nervous system and how to apply DBT techniques to self soothe when experiencing overwhelming emotions.
The discussion will be followed by a sound journey courtesy of musician Dustin Borlack. Offering harmonious vibrations and soothing sounds, Dustin enhances the meditative experience with singing bowls and the Shruti box. Accompanying Dustin will be Matthew Vanderford guiding us through a meditation designed to eliminate stressful thoughts and be present in the current moment.
Benefits of meditation are physical and emotional according to the Mayo Clinic.
Afraid you can't sit still long enough to truly meditate? We'll also be introduce to micro-moments of self care, like heart-focused breathing and tapping, an emotional freedom technique. While tapping is an activity, different from the stillness of meditation, it is also a powerful stress relief technique based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.
Jean-Marie Lombardi, an advocate of Green Compass CBD products will also be on site to answer questions about Green Compass' products designed to balance and restore calm and focus.
Because self-care is for everyone, this event is open to the public and everyone is welcome. Dress comfortably and feel free to bring your own meditation pillow, mat or blanket.
Your ticket price includes brunch bites, craft coffees, juices and espresso martinis made with Seedlip non-alcoholic spirits. Grab a friend and register today!
