Parish Health Mental Health Series
The Parish Health Ministry Team is continuing to focus on mental health for 2020. We have an upcoming online opportunity that will strengthen our mindfulness skills and give us a tool to weather the storms of 2020 and beyond.
Serenity in the Storm:
Acquire and Strengthen Skills to Help You Navigate the Storms of Life
Are you finding it hard to live amidst the volatility, fear, and uncertainty of these days? Are you frustrated with the constant bombardment of negativity? These days, are you cooped up with nowhere to go?
Come connect and learn skills with other adults as we develop skills to navigate the storms of life with serenity. You will learn about states of mind, core mindfulness skills, the power of the middle path, distress tolerance skills, the power of reality and radical acceptance. Each session will be lively and interactive.
