Hold on to yourself: November Meditation SeriesOctober 23, 2018
November 5, 12, 26: HOLD ON TO YOURSELF (3-week series)
As we head into the holiday season, it is important that we remain vigilant in our ability to hold on to ourselves. In fact, often times, this season can be tumultuous where our demands and needs are outweighed by our internal resources. And in some cases, we need to learn to tie ourselves to the mast.
In this 3-week series we will be excavating our innate tools to help us make sure that we are being resourced in the most beneficial ways. We will examine the science around empathic distress and learn how to keep from being overwhelmed by another’s suffering. And we will go beyond Self, in learning how we can connect to a source of compassion that surpasses our normal human limits, thus always feeling confident, strong and capable no matter what life stressors we are facing.
Jennifer Finch, M.A., LPC, NBCC, Certified Meditation Instructor
I am a psycho-therapist using the modalities of meditation, somatic experiencing and compassion to help one heal from the inside out. I am a mother of two boys (12 and
13), a devoted student of self-curiosity, occasional writer, teacher of meditation based workshops, and train the trainer programs, photographer, music snob and owner of two pugs (not specifically in that order).
The meditation spark initiated when I was in graduate school in the late 1900s and I began teaching it without a net of research or ounce of confidence in what I was doing. Now, almost three decades later, both historical and cutting- edge research support that leap of faith I took.
