This is an 6-week, 90 minute Zoom class that focuses on mindfulness practices that can support skillful responding to unwanted behavior developed around those stressful challenges of everyday life.  This program is based on the Unwinding Anxiety, Eat Right Now and Craving to Quit programs that contain the evidenced based research of Judson Brewer, MD PHD, Director of Research and Innovation at Brown University Center for Mindfulness School of Public Health engaging in the brain’s inherent reward based learning system.

This class is designed to begin to unwind unwanted habits through guidance and group support. The practices learned will help to foster greater resilience, well-being, and social connection through greater kindness and inherent curiosity with better understanding how the brain works through the neuroscience behind it. In this class, you will learn how to map out habits , whether it be anxiety, smoking, stress eating -you name it – and begin to unwind the unhelpful ones. We will identify triggers and behaviors and begin to glean a better understanding in beginning to step out of these unwanted behavioral patterns by a better understanding in how the reward based system of the brain works.
