Breaking Free of Destructive Habits

Wednesday, October 20
7-8:30 PM
Pilgrim Congregational Church Sanctuary

with Dave Smith

Rising numbers of individuals are currently struggling with the emotional and psychological stress and hardship created by the COVID pandemic. These destructive patterns of mind manifest as fear, anxiety, depression, and addiction. Meditative trainings such as mindfulness and self-compassion can help us to uncover, overcome and heal from what lies at the root of these strong psychological habits. Through careful investigation of our mental and emotional life, we can generate and develop tools for resilience, well-being, and emotional balance.


During this evening event, Dave will discuss practical and relevant meditation techniques and practices that will better serve us as we traverse our current situation. Registration coming soon!
