Letting go can be so very hard to do! Resistance to accepting difficult circumstances is often part of the human experience, especially when those circumstances are out of our control.

Even though our natural urge is to wrestle for control and micro-manage our life, research shows that practicing acceptance reduces stress and can lead to better overall emotional and physical health. In this 1-hour workshop, you will learn some tools and practices that can help build your muscle of acceptance. Developing a skillset that includes changing your mindset, building your support, and exploring meaning, can make the shift from resisting what is – to accepting what is – a little easier..

Instructors: Mia Primeau, MA Somatic Counseling Psychology. Mia has 7+ years experience in health education, coaching, and holistic counseling. Mia's studies have focused on the core qualities that allow for acceptance, particularly at the end of life.

Maia Tamanakis, certified wellness coach and personal trainer. Maia has taught fitness, nutrition, stress management and chronic disease prevention for over 10 years. With a background in psychology and personal practice in mindfulness and meditation, Maia values the interplay between mind, body and spirit on overall wellness.
