Retraining Your Brain to Deal With Worry

Virtual Workshop

One of the most common issues that many of us deal with is worry.  Worry can cause constant disturbing thoughts of the past and future that tiringly churn in our heads and rob us of the peace within the present.  What can we do to enjoy the moment, decrease our worry, and get “unstuck” out of the constant worries in that cycle in our heads?  This workshop will help us begin a journey to finding an effective path to walking alongside our worries.  To register, please click on the links below to complete the registration form and pay to secure your spot.
