The difficulties and stress we have been experiencing this past year have taken a toll on us all. This year is one for the record books! Many of us were already struggling with feelings of dissatisfaction and ineffectiveness, decreased attention, as well as emotional overwhelm and worries, even BEFORE the onset of COVID.
AND even with the heightening of these experiences, WE CAN STILL LEARN POWERFUL COPING TOOLS.

ZOOM - a registration link will be sent to you prior to the group's first session. Once you complete registration on zoom, you will receive the group's access information and an access link will be sent to you each week.
Sundays 11:30 AM to 1 PM (April 11th, 18th, 25th, May 2nd, and May 9th)
This group will include both didactic and hands-on practices and will cover core mindfulness concepts including “Wise Mind”, the “What” and “How” skills of mindfulness, as well as the skills of “Reality Acceptance.”
This group is facilitated by Robin Friedman, LCSW-R. Robin has been a practicing student of mindfulness informally and formally throughout much of her adult life. Robin trained with Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. the creator of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to become a mindfulness skills training facilitator so that she may effectively train groups of people to integrate these skills into their daily lives. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of group facilitation, Robin continues to feel excitement each time she starts this group as she knows first-hand how these skills can be life-changing.
Cultivating a regular mindfulness practice in one’s life can be transformative. Research shows that mindfulness skills practice can help one decrease depression, anxiety, and irritability, lessen distraction and increase one’s ability to control his or her attention, increase our ability to regulate our emotions, and enhance our immune system.
This group series costs $250 and includes 5 – 90 minute sessions.
