Drop-in Session: Meditation During Times of Uncertainty

Diane Hetrick

About this Event

Many of us are realizing it might be helpful to meditate more during these times of uncertainty and increased challenges.  Yet sometimes we find ourselves meditating and feeling stuck in our fight/flight/freeze mode. And then we judge or blame ourselves for not being able to settle.  

This session will incorporate some simple and accessible mindfulness tools of self-regulation so that our meditations don’t just exaggerate some of the stress and anxiety we might be feeling, but instead bring us a sense of grounding and comfort.   

CCFW is pleased to offer these drop-in sessions for free. We welcome contributions to our Mindfulness Outreach Support Fund to increase the accessibility of our paid courses and community trainings for individuals working with children and families facing adversity. Visit our “Make a Gift” page to make a donation and support others with limited resources.
