Good News and Effective Tools for Building Resilience and Managing Stress

With Linda Chamberlain, PhD MPH

August 18 and August 26 3-5 pm PT

Part 1 August 18th 3-5 p.m.  Understanding the science of breath has never been more important to our healing and well-being.  We will practice some simple breath awareness strategies and movements as we explore how the breath can shift the nervous system, calm the brain and build resilience.  In the second part of this workshop, participants will learn about an evidence-based tool called iRest.  iRest, the abbreviation for Integrative Restoration, is a mind-body practice that combines guided meditation with breath work and deep relaxation techniques.  Found to be highly effective for stress, anxiety, depression, sleep problems and other related issues, iRest was initially developed with the U.S. military and is now used in a wide range of settings around the world.  An overview of the scientific evidence supporting iRest will be interwoven into some brief practices to demonstrate two iRest tools.  There will be one break and time for questions, answers and discussion.

Part 2 August 26th 3-5 p.m.  The second session in this series will began with easy breath and movement strategies that can be done while seated to reduce stress and counteract the effects of sitting for long periods of time.  We will then transition to a review of the ten tools of iRest with an emphasis on building our inner resource, setting an intention and affirming our heartfelt mission.  We will do some brief practices to demonstrate how iRest works with our brains and bodies to harness our innate capacity for resilience.  The session will close with a guided iRest meditation followed by questions and discussion.  There will be one break.

Certificates are available – $60 for 4 hours Workshop
