Metta Pets Mindfulness for Stress Reduction: Introductory Webinar Series

 

This introductory Three-Part series focuses on practical Mindfulness practices that you can implement daily to decrease stress, support your overall well-being and increase your capacity to experience positive emotional states more often. 

 

As a Metta Pets Webinar, emphasis will be on practices and discussions pertaining to Pet Parents and Veterinarians caring for pets diagnosed with cancer. 

 

While we can't control most of the events we experience in life, we can learn tools to help ourselves navigate those experiences with more ease and grace. 

 

With practice, those new habits become second nature and we soon find that things which used to feel difficult for us may not feel that way any more. We become happier. We become more peaceful. 

 

When we are happier and more peaceful, that positively impacts everything we do. We become more resilient and are not so deeply affected by the stressors of life. 

 

As we are happier and healthier, we are able to offer more to those we care about. We are able to be better pet parents, doctors, caregivers, spouses, siblings, friends and community members.

 

Giving yourself the tools to find peace amidst the chaos and challenges of life is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. My hope is that this free webinar series will help you.

You give others so much. 

Give yourself this hour to really focus on you. 

Mindful self-care helps you be the best "you" for others. 

It's not selfish. It's compassionate.

It isn't a waste of time (we are all busy). 

It's how you become more efficient and effective in life.

Your happiness is important. 

Take charge of it!

Practices for Stress Reduction: Part 3

*I recommend good headphones or external speakers for this webinar...we were having internet connection challenges at the house this day. Sound is quiet and a little fuzzy in places.

In Part 3 of this three part series you will learn:

  • What is Metta Meditation, or Loving Kindness Meditation

  • What are the benefits of Metta Meditation

  • How to do Metta Meditation properly

  • Tips to help you navigate emotional bumps in the road

 

This webinar is 1 hour in length.

 

Metta Meditation has been the topic of much research and is often referred to as "Loving Kindness Meditation".

 

Metta Meditation is considered by many to be one of the most transformative single meditation practices when done on a regular basis with proper instruction.

 

If you are open to or interested in a sitting meditation practice to support your daily self-care routine, this webinar is for you.

 

You will be guided through a short classical version of the meditation which is accessible for everyday practice when time is limited.

 

You can access an expanded version of the meditation which I recorded as a supplement to this webinar here. I encourage you to listen to the webinar first for optimal benefit.
