Guided Meditation on Working With Challenging Emotions
Time & Location
About the Event
The crisis in India has been very difficult for many of our members and to support them during these difficult times, we are working towards bringing more sessions around #mindfulness and #copingwithgrief and #anxiety!
We are truly grateful to our partner, The Consciousness Explorers Club, an innovative contemplative community and think-tank based in Toronto led by Jeff Warren! A big thank you to Erin Oke, the Executive Director at the Consciousness Explorers Club for leading the session.
We will do a brief introduction about mindfulness practice and guide a meditation geared towards working with challenging emotions. After that the session will be opened up for sharing about the practices and other coping methods people are using to help with grief and anxiety.
Erin's focus is on meditation for self-care and emotional well being and she has taught mindfulness skills in health care, education, corporate and non-profit settings. She also does mindfulness coaching for individuals, with a specialty in encouraging emotional self-regulation. She has a background in social service work, having served as Youth Program Coordinator for ehm from 2007-2018, where she ran a youth centre and support programs for low-income children and youth in downtown Toronto. She also studied and worked in theatre for many years, and loves to infuse her teaching with a sense of play and creative exploration. Erin is passionate about the confluence of meditation practice and social justice, and using mindfulness in the service of caring better for oneself and others.
