Join us in the Readings Gallery for another great workshop on the value and practice of mindfulness with Carolyn McCarthy!


Curious about mindfulness? Led by Carolyn McCarthy, certified Mindfulness and Mindful Self-Compassion Instructor with Mindfulness Northwest, this one-hour interactive presentation will introduce you to the research behind mindfulness and how it can help us live more peaceful and fulfilled lives. You'll leave with a handout and a tool kit of simple practices to use at work and home.
This participatory, practical introductory class includes: Definitions and benefits of mindfulness, a helpful handout summarizing the benefits and practices of mindfulness, body and breath awareness practices, group dialogue and small group discussion, and suggestions on resources for ongoing practice and how to apply mindfulness at work and home.

Based on the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, which has been shown to reduce chronic pain and boost the immune system, address painful mental states like depression and anxiety, minimize emotional reactivity and promote well-being, and increase flexible attention and sharpen mental focus.
