How: [ Event Site ]
Cairo is the 5th most stressful city in the world (CNN Travel). While stress and trauma are unwelcome guests that have been overdoing their stay, Egyptians have one common trait: resilience-the ability to recover quickly from difficult situations. While we may not be able to bring immediate change to our current climate, we can change our relationship with personal stress and prevent it from causing further psychological and physiological harm. In moments of stress, we have an immediate desire to distract ourselves with harmful behaviours. As a result of these distractions, we oppress our emotions and react from a place of impulsiveness. However, by tapping into our own resilience, we can respond from a place of mindfulness. Practicing mindfulness helps us to create a space to pause in a moment of stress, observe these emotions, and respond with clarity. This workshop is suitable for those who would like to begin a meditation practice and/or deepen their knowledge on the science of mindfulness.

During this workshop, you will learn:
-the neuroscience, physiological, and psychological effects of stress
-the neuroscience, physiological, and psychological effects of mindfulness
-primary versus secondary emotions
-how to observe and label emotions
-mindful breathing exercises
-how to begin a sitting meditation practice
-how to bring mindfulness to everyday activities
