Mindfulness-Based Group Therapy for Chronic Pain

Would you like to learn how you to use the power of your mind to alleviate your pain and the anxiety and depression that may accompany it? Mindfulness-based group therapy can help answer these questions while teaching you the skills you need to harness your mind’s power to gain control over your pain and finally find relief.

Mindfulness-Based Group Therapy for Chronic Overeating

Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness (MB-EAT) is a non-diet approach that can transform your struggles with food. In this group you will learn how to bring your full attention to the process of eating—to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal –so that you change your relationship to food and eating in a way that can have dramatic results for your health, weight and overall well-being. In this group, you will discover what you are really hungry for.

Tuesdays: 5:00pm – 6:30pm                                  Wednesdays:            10:15am – 11:45pm
