Following the successful and meaningful completion of our spring group, we are pleased to announce a new process group for people facing anxiety will begin its journey in the fall. 

 

One of the main ways to alleviate anxiety is by increasing body-awareness and strengthening the mind-body connection. For this, we will practice Bioenergetic exercises, mindfulness, and other techniques to deepen our breathing and strengthen our grounding.

This group is for people who want a safe, judgment-free space to share and experience themselves, to better understand their anxiety, and to explore ways to deal with it as part of their process of self-discovery and self-development.
