Drop-in Session: Widening Your Window of Tolerance – Increasing Your Awareness to Live Mindfully

Diane Hetrick

About this Event

CCFW does not provide mental health or substance use treatment or services, nor do our mindfulness and compassion-based courses substitute for diagnosis or treatment for mental health or substance use problems such as depression, anxiety, or addiction. Find a list of mental health resources on CCFW’s resource page.

Our actions and behaviors in life are influenced by the state of our nervous system. Learning how to increase our awareness of when and how we get ‘thrown out of our window of tolerance’ either to overwhelm or collapse is a useful skill to live more mindfully. Drawing on the work of Steve Porges and Deb Dana, we will become more familiar with our window of tolerance, learn how to bring ourselves back to safety and stability, and widen our window to be more resilient to life’s challenges.
