The majority of participants report lasting decreases in both physical and psychological symptoms. Pain levels improve and people learn to better cope with pain that may not go away. Most people also report an increased ability to relax, greater enthusiasm for life, improved self-esteem, and increased ability to cope more effectively with stressful situations.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Distance Learning

April 2019| Starts Apr. 1 | Register now through Mar. 28

CEUs available: ICHWC

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a method of using meditation and yoga to cultivate awareness and reduce stress. It is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which is about waking up, being fully alive, and being present for the richness of each moment of our lives. Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress.

In the MBSR Distance Learning course participants “meet” with their instructor and classmates once a week via telephone conference, from wherever they may be.  This program is designed to deliver the same teachings and opportunity for group learning as our on-site MBSR program to those who are unable to visit our facility on a weekly basis, for reasons of scheduling difficulties, distance, or physical limitations.

Reiki: Level One

Starts April 6 | Register now through April 3

CEUs available: ICHWC, NCBTMB

Reiki, a form of energy healing, is an ancient practice that is used to reduce stress, improve health and quality of life, and support physical and emotional healing.

Reiki is accessible to everyone and is easy to learn. Practitioners use specific hand positions, held for a few minutes on or near the client’s clothed body. Participants who complete Reiki 1 training will be eligible for continuing education credits.
