What Keeps you up at Night?

Learn Simple Techniques for Managing Stress in your Everyday Life and Experience a Free Soundbath Meditation to Calm the Mind and Body.

We live in a society that induces stress. From our fast-paced, deadline-driven, plugged-in realities, to the myriad of pressing social issues affecting us all, how can we stay grounded and build resilience in our lives?

In this session, you will learn:

  • Gain an understanding of how stress impacts the brain and body

  • Learn how to tune into your body and acquire simple techniques to regulate your stress

  • At the end of the workshop, you will receive a free live 15 Soundbath Meditation experience

For the live Soundbath Meditation portion of the workshop, fellow certified Sound Therapy Practitioner, Nicole Manes, will be joining Laura Notton to create an unforgettable Soundbath Meditation experience. No previous meditation experience is necessary. Both Nicole and Laura have provided sound therapy at a number of organizations and workplace settings including Rotman School of Management / University of Toronto, Unison Health & Community Services, Better Life Studios, Living Waters Therapies, The Integrative Heath Care Clinic at ITM, private retreats and more.
