Basic Mindfulness: Using Mindfulness with Pain

March 12th,2021 | 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM
Professor/Instructor/Speaker: Penny Mechley-Porter

Join Penny as she helps you deepen your mindfulness practice. In this exercise, you'll become a watchful observer: noticing your automatic thoughts when you're in pain; your emotions, such as fear; the clenching around pain that happens in your body. Then we'll use the imagery of flowing water to bathe the pain points. Over time, this practice can help you change your relationship to the pain you experience.

This event will be broadcast digitally on the Jefferson's Facebook page and made available on our website.
