FINDING PEACE IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS
Every Monday, October 21st – November 25th
This will be Ginger Storey-Welch’s fourth year offering Finding Peace in the Midst of Chaos. Since we are often living in chaotic times, this approach to mental wellness will give you tools for day-to-day upsets anywhere, anytime.
This class is a mixture of both sitting and walking meditation, breath-work, and the use of an “emotional toolbox.” This “toolbox” is a collection of many practical strategies for self-calming; replacing obsessive, negative or self-critical thought patterns with alternate and more positive ones; and maintaining or quickly returning to a calm state even when “the flat tire” happens at just the wrong time.
While these strategies are helpful on their own, a meditation practice goes hand-in-hand with them and helps make them a way of life. Each week you can look forward to developing a kinder inner voice and a deepening sense of peace that comes as your mind learns to respond with calm instead of stress—-even in chaotic moments.
With over 20 years experience, Ginger has introduced meditation to many people and has a wide range of suggestions on how to utilize various meditation supplies and techniques to best suit your needs.
