Mindfulness Based Pain Management ~ An 8 Week Series
This is a simple eight-week program of mindfulness-based practices that is specifically designed for people suffering from persistent pain, illness or the stress associated with these or other conditions. Participants quickly learn to manage their pain and live life fully once again in a warm, friendly group setting.
These mindfulness-based practices soothe the brain’s pain networks, while also significantly reducing the anxiety, stress, exhaustion, irritability, and depression that often accompanies chronic pain and illness. Whether they experience back pain, arthritis, or migraines, are recovering from surgery, suffering from fibromyalgia, celiac disease, or undergoing chemotherapy, participants quickly learn to manage their pain and live life fully once again.
Participants receive a workbook and audio files to support their daily practice and exploration. The work takes just ten to twenty minutes per day and the course has been shown to be as effective as prescription painkillers to soothe some of the most common causes of pain.
Please purchase a copy of You are not your Pain by Vydiamala Burch and Danny Penman prior to beginning the course.
