Reclaim Your Clarity and Calm: Steps you can take to improve how you respond to life’s little (and big) ups and downs

You hear a lot of conversation these days about the benefits of mindfulness, and you can read any number of books about the importance of emotional intelligence. But do you understand how the two are connected and what you can do to increase both your mindfulness and emotional intelligence to improve your physical and emotional health?

If you have promised yourself that THIS will be the year to invest in yourself, join us! This professional development opportunity will help you begin to understand the power and benefits of mindfulness and emotional intelligence for you and your organization.

When: 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, March 29, 2019 (Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.)
What: Learn how to establish daily practices that will increase your mindfulness and emotional intelligence–helping you handle life’s ups and downs.
Where: Tula Yoga & Wellness, 99 Snelling Ave. N., St. Paul, Minnesota
Cost: $155 (includes lunch and a journal)

During this session led by Athena Adkins and Martha Lee we will:

  • Share a basic understanding of how the brain processes emotions and how daily mindfulness practices improve brain health;
  • Define what mindfulness and emotional intelligence are and why they are important;
  • Introduce practices to increase mindfulness and emotional intelligence; and
  • Present the research behind it all.

In addition, we will discuss how mindfulness can increase our ability to experience greater empathy, compassion, clarity and calm in our daily lives.

How is this different? We will focus on the practical application of mindfulness techniques you can use anytime, anywhere. You will use your personal experience to make meaning of the information shared so you can increase your ability to manage your emotions rather than be managed by them. Our learning won’t end with this workshop! This is just the beginning, and we look forward to helping you build a sustainable mindfulness practice—for home, for work, for life!
