The Art of Self Care

Date: October 6, 2019

Time: 10:00am-4:00pm

Location: Bancroft School of Massage Therapy, 333 Shrewsbury St, Worcester, MA

The Art of Self Care

As a society we believe that pain or “dis-ease” comes from aging or a stressful lifestyle and we just have to accept it, but what we really need is a better understanding of how the body works as a whole and learn easy consistent self-care so we can truly live pain free and happier.

In The Art of Self Care we will learn how to alleviate muscle imbalances, practice meditation for stress relief, take part in joyous breath work, explore ayurvedic self-care & embrace the fact that we as Massage Therapists can have a long, happy & healthy practice for many years with ease.

CHRISTINE BISSONNETTE, LMT, is a presenter & massage therapist at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and Optimum Health Therapeutic Massage and has lived a pain free life for all of her 18 years as a full time massage therapist specializing in relieving chronic pain.

Meditation for Radical Acceptance

Date: March 31, 2019

Time: 1:00-2:30PM

Location: The Pilates Studio, 353 Walnut Street Ext., Agawam, MA 01001

Meditation for Radical Acceptance

One of the deepest forms of suffering in society is the pain of believing that “something is wrong with me.” Feeling that we are continually falling short. Whether in the shape of chronic self-judgment, blaming others, depression, anxiety, or shame, feelings of deficiency prevent us from living and loving fully.

Radical acceptance arises as we cultivate mindfulness and self-compassion through meditation. In this class we will includes talks, guided and silent meditations and gentle movement to learn to bring an unconditionally kind presence to our lives, which in turn allows us to handle life more clearly and patiently. We then explore how to cultivate the forgiveness and compassion that allows us to embrace others with an open and wise heart.
