Every semester, Dr. Ann Friedman of The Jung Center's Mind, Body Spirit Institute will lead us on an ever-renewing exploration of the transformative, healing, and calming powers unleashed when we integrate mindfulness practices into our daily lives. Join us – as you can – for Mindful Being.

Anxiety is on the rise in younger generations. It affects behavior, school performance, and relationships. When we feel threatened socially, emotionally, intellectually, financially, or physically, we can go into a tailspin: the more we worry, the less realistic we are. We cannot focus, and tend to lose perspective.

Join Dr. Ann Friedman, Psychologist and Certified Mindfulness Facilitator, for an introduction to ways to calm your anxiety. This course is especially designed for students who are experiencing anxiety with some aspect of their life: school work, relationships, or outside activities. It is in no way intended to be a replacement for therapy for those who need it. Many people – whether or not they are seeking professional help – practice mindfulness for better mental health.

Over the course of 3 sessions, students will learn techniques to train attention and increase the sustainability of their focus, establish contact between the mind and the body, understand the ways our cognitive distortions and biases affect our minds and the world around us, and calm the mind through the practices equanimity and self-compassion.
