Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

The Camp Kerry Society is pleased to be offering our Mindfulness Program in partnership with Douglas College. This Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course, based on the program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, runs over 8 weeks, and offers guided mindfulness meditation practice.

 

The course is taught by Camp Kerry Team member, Anne Walker, who has worked in the health care field as a hospice/palliative/oncology care Social Worker for over 20 years. Creating safety, building resilience and holding possibility are important to her as well as compassion, laughter and mutual adventure in learning.

 

So many of us struggle to find time in our lives for self-care. We have too much to do and not enough time to do it. We have deadlines and multiple competing priorities for our attention. On top of these daily challenges some of us face deeper challenges that are largely out of our control. Health challenges – our own or those of someone we love. Mental health challenges; such as coping with anxiety or with grief and loss. When there are many demands on us it is easy to get overwhelmed by stress or to get lost in our own thoughts and miss out on what really matters in our lives. Practicing Mindfulness – “paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judging” – can help us manage stress, regain our energy and our clarity of thought and intention.
