Reduce Your Stress & Create Peace in Your Life: A Parent Café Event

October 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Joy Davy

Mon, Oct 3 @7:00pm-8:20 pm

Reduce Your Stress & Create Peace in Your Life

Joy Davy will guide you through a deeply relaxing practice of  yoga breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and guided imagery.  You will also have an opportunity to discuss talking points on stress reduction with other adults in a small and friendly group, “parent café-style”.  FREE event.  Please register through LTHS Adult Education later this summer. 

Joy will help you practice skills you can use throughout your daily life, whenever stress arises.

It is wisely said that all we truly have to offer anyone else is our own state of being. When we are stressed, we offer anxiety and sadness. When we are peaceful, we offer acceptance and joy. Therefore, it is helpful not only to ourselves, but to everyone around us, when we learn to consciously relax ourselves and set the example of practicing loving kindness and self-compassion.

Your take-aways from this session will be immediately useful in your life.   You will practice the skills of using your breath, intentionally relaxing each part of your body, and using your mind to access your own peaceful center. You will also have an opportunity to consider how you can better attend to your own needs for self-care, in order to be more present for those you love. Great for parents and others with challenging lives.
