What is a Mind-Body Skills Group?
Mind-Body Skills Groups offer a powerful and effective combination of research-based healing therapies to help participants deal with life changes, stress, and illness in an intimate and supportive group setting. The groups are small, usually, 7-9 people, which allows for a deeper level of connection, sharing, and support. All of the groups meet at a set day and time for 6, 8, or 12 weeks (depending on the setting), 2-hours each week, which provides an opportunity for participants to begin to integrate the mind-body skills into their lives, with the support of the group to help them work through any difficulties along the way.
What skills are taught in a Mind-Body Skills Group?
Mind-Body skills groups are highly experiential and integrate techniques such as Meditation, Guided Imagery, Autogenic training (self-hypnosis), Breath Work, Movement, Journal Writing, Drawing, and other approaches into a supportive group environment.
Who usually joins a Mind-Body Skills group?
Everyone can benefit from a Mind-Body Skills Group! As a result, groups are comprised of adults of all ages and all types of backgrounds - people who are seeking support in making changes in their lives, whether the desire is to decrease stress, increase coping skills, manage anxiety or depression more effectively, or any number of other concerns. These groups are great to take on your own, but they are also excellent workplace wellness offerings by employers to help their staff cope and perform better under stressful work situations.
