Are you yearning to break free from one or more unhelpful habits? We all have cravings or unskillful tendencies that are triggered by discomfort, anxiety or the uncertainties of everyday life.
In this online session with Robert Lurye, learn why habits are so hard to overcome, why willpower fails, and what we can do instead to change unwanted behaviors.
Mindfulness-Based Habit Change
Mindfulness-Based Habit Change (MBHC) is an evidence-based program based in part on the research of Dr. Judson Brewer. The program introduces us to the science of how habits are formed and teaches ancient strategies and practices to help us move past cravings and everyday addictions.
Learn how mindfulness can help us become more aware of the craving cycle and disenchanted with its results. Explore how curiosity and heartfeltness serve as rewarding replacements for our most unskillful habits.
Who is this class for?
This introductory session teaches the fundamental principles of Mindfulness-Based Habit Change. Expect an introduction to the habit loop and reward-based learning, a variety of short mindful awareness practices, and group discussion.
Participants interested in deepening their experience may wish to continue with the 8-week program, Unwinding Anxiety through Mindfulness-Based Habit Change.
This is an online course. Join us LIVE on Zoom from the comfort of your own home.
