Reduce Stress and Build Resilience.
Develop Effective Coping Skills.
Wellbeing Anchor, Online Mind Body Skills Group is a meditative group process, and is one among a variety of programs worldwide involving Mind-Body Medicine theory and practice.
Wellbeing Anchor, Online Mind Body Skills Group offers a combination of research based healing therapies to help participants deal with life changes, stress and illness. They incorporate some of the effective and accessible stress reduction tools. They are highly experiential and integrate techniques such as meditation, guided imagery, autogenic training (self-hypnosis), breath work, movement, self-expression, journaling and other approaches all taught in a supportive environment.
Wellbeing Anchor, Online Mind Body Skills Group model recognizes and embraces individual differences; participants are given an opportunity to explore a variety of methods, and to take the time to listen inwardly to learn more about their own needs.
Anyone can benefit from joining including people who already practice some mind-body skills. Groups are comprised of adults of all ages and backgrounds.
The common theme is the desire to seek support and develop internal resources to make changes – whether to decrease stress, pain or anxiety, enhance health and well-being or find clarity about important life decisions.
An online group is grounded in self-reflection. Sharing with others in a structured and intimate group format affords a unique space to acknowledge, honor, and express the various aspects of your experience.
Wellbeing Anchor, Online Mind Body Skills Group supports being witness to your own as well as other’s emotions and experiences. We find that sharing and connecting with others creates a wonderful learning and growth environment that supports individual and collective well-being.
Our groups emphasize a sense of community. They are small, with 8 to10 people and meet on a set day and time for 8 weekly sessions (usually on Saturdays), with each group lasting 1.5 to 2 hours.
This format provides an opportunity to begin to integrate the mind-body skills into your life, in a real and practical way, with the support of the group to help you work through any difficulties along the way.
This online educational project has been launched to bring you the opportunity to experience Wellbeing Center’s time-trusted approach, in a way that’s most convenient for you.
You will practise Mind Body skills and you will benefit from the experience of the powerful small group support. Our groups have been designed to be practical and grounded into your daily life. You will integrate what you’ve learned immediately into your daily life, maximizing your self-care and enabling you to deal more successfully with stress, all with a support and guidance of our facilitator, Dr. Myrna Saadeh.
