Mindfulness for Cultivating Resilience
December 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
As part of their four-pillared cognitive rehabilitation program, the Watson Centre Society for Brain Health is now offering free community programs to support and educate brain injury survivors along their journey through recovery. This program is also funded in part by the Community Grants Program with ICBC.
Build the foundations of your mindfulness practice to create balance throughout your brain injury recovery in an approachable community setting.
New to meditation? Don’t know if it will be useful for you? Most anyone can benefit from practicing calming the mind, centering our focus, and opening our awareness. And yes, even your busy, distractable mind can find a point of calm. There are many benefits for cognitive recovery after brain injury, including improving your ability to focus, reducing reactivity from sensory stimulation, reducing stress response, increase self-awareness, improve sleep… and SO much more!
Learn about the benefits and the practical applications of meditation & mindfulness for your cognitive recovery and overall wellbeing.
This class is suitable for independent brain injury survivors and for others with disabilities or injuries. If you require assistance to attend, please prepare supports (for example, a support worker) and let the event organizers know ahead of time.
