Wellness Series Emotions Discussion Report

On 11 December, Traidhos hosted a community wellness discussion titled ‘Emotions: Approaches to Anger and Stress’ with Steven Epstein, meditation teacher in the Vietnamese Zen tradition of Tich Nhat Hanh, and Casey Gramagilia, Intensive English Program and Vispassana meditation teacher who brings meditation and mindfulness into the classroom. Traidhos staff, parents, teachers and community volunteers learned about these two approaches to anger and stress that included brief practise to introduce tools we might use in our daily lives. We discussed how, as a community, we might provide more tools and understanding on how to cultivate kindness and address anger as a natural emotion that should be recognised but not ‘watered’. There are many opportunities to integrate awareness and mindfulness into our lives with the resources at Traidhos:  for example at The Farm we might find ways to build mindfulness tools into our learning and lives.

All are welcome to join us for the next community wellness discussion Thursday 22 January 2015. We will focus on the Air We Breath inviting Paula DiPerna Traidhos Visiting Artist in Residence. Contact [email protected]
