Description: Mindfulness can help people deal with difficult thoughts and experiences with self-compassion: those benefits are amplified when mindfulness is combined with writing. In 30 minutes, we’ll discuss ways to use mindful writing to redirect attention to the present moment (useful for grounding ourselves in the now and gaining better control of our thoughts). Activities will include a Mind List and Yoga for Hands. The goal is to develop calm awareness through writing, to find equanimity by dwelling in the present moment, perfect moment.
