Thu Sep 09, 2021 - Thu Oct 28, 2021
8-Week Live Online Webinar Series
September 9, 2021 - October 28, 2021 | Every Thursday | 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM Pacific Time


The 8-Week Online Mind-Body Skills Group is an educational, supportive group built upon developing self-care skills. In this series, students will learn the scientific basis of mind-body medicine, while experiencing the power of the small group approach.   Participants learn to use a range of the most effective tools for self-care and stress management. Mind-Body Skills Groups have been developed over the last 30 years according to a model created by The Center for Mind-Body Medicine’s Founder and Executive Director, James S. Gordon, MD, and the Senior Faculty of The Center. These highly experiential and integrative techniques such as meditation, guided imagery, autogenic training, breath work, movement, self-expression and other approaches are taught in a supportive environment. An online Mind-Body Skills Group is grounded in self-reflection. Sharing and connecting with others creates a wonderful learning and growth environment that supports individual and collective well-being. 

Learning Objectives:
The evidence-based skills that you will learn have been documented to help lower levels of stress, improve mood, enhance resiliency and optimism, and help prevent chronic health conditions. These skills include:
  • Meditation – Several different kinds, including concentrative, mindfulness, and expressive meditations – all of which promote relaxed, moment to moment awareness.
  • Guided Imagery – To mobilize your imagination, to improve physiological functioning, and address concerns and problems that have previously resisted solutions.
  • Autogenic training & Biofeedback – To develop control over autonomic system functioning, reduce stress, and bring mind and body into balance.
  • Breath Work – Enhance your health through breath awareness
  • Movement – To release stress and increase energy.
  • Self expression – in words in journaling and drawing, to find solutions to previously insoluble problems
