Attendees learn the principles of mindfulness meditation, the importance of living in the moment, the power of now and how these relate to suffering less pain. Mindfulness assists in remaining calmer and more pain controlled despite the challenges of everyday life , such as when interacting with family, friends, colleagues, employers, and insurers. This can change the intensity of pain suffering, both emotional and physical, in a very positive way. Life skills are also enhanced in this course. Consistent attendance is required to remain in the course.
This program is offered via OTN (Ontario Telehealth Network) for a total of 13 weeks.
