Mind Body Empowerment
Self-empowerment and self-compassion are powerful catalysts for health and wellbeing. When we believe we can meet life’s challenges, and when we treat ourselves kindly, we feel more relaxed, grounded, resilient, and balanced. Taught by a physician and a psychologist, this course improves self-empowerment and self-compassion by helping participants feel more deeply connected with their bodies. With the aid of brief lectures, guided mindfulness exercises, and group discussion, you will learn how to gain distance from negative thinking, chronic pain, and emotional distress. These skills can be especially helpful for people grappling with anxiety, aging, or illness. Prior students have reported increased stress tolerance and self-acceptance after taking this class. The course is based on the book In Your Own Hands, written by Dr. Berkelhammer, and the Mindful Biology method developed by Dr. Meecham.
