In recent years, we’ve had to adapt to managing our work lives and personal relationships in new and often difficult ways. As we consider what it means “to return”—to the office, social events, and routines—we may feel some anxiety, even panic. Every person will have a different list of concerns, but we can all benefit from how mindfulness renegotiates our responses to whatever the “latest normal” happens to be. We will identify the circumstances which give rise to difficult emotions; address those emotions in purposeful and practical ways; all in the service of feeling steadier in the face of persistently turbulent times. Prerequisite: Intro to Mindfulness or existing mindfulness practice.
