We are pleased to offer the second workshop in our Reaching Out: CT COLT Professional Learning Series: Releasing Your Negative Thought Patterns (No More “Monkey Mind”) presented by Christine Rapp Dombrowski, Ph.D., finding dharma llc, on Tuesday, 2/1 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Workshop Description

Do you spend a lot of time in your thoughts with stories of what you should do or what might happen? Do you wake up with to-do lists running through your mind? Do you feel like your life is dictated by outside demands?

In this workshop we will look at what cognitive psychology tells us about how these thought patterns and beliefs develop, how they can affect our lives, and how mindful practices can help free us from their negative impact. Through various exercises we will have the opportunity to identify some of our individual thought patterns creating stress/anxiety/worry in our lives, and then begin to mindfully and compassionately release and shift them to ones of empowerment and self-love.
