Working with Stress

Insight into the mechanics of stress with practical mindfulness-based solutions

Here’s what you’ll gain from this course:

  • Learn to reduce stress & anxiety through meditation practice
  • Experience a new way to perceive stressful situations
  • Insight into disrupting the emotional patterns that cause stress
  • Employ better coping skills through meditation practice

We experience stress and anxiety when daily pressures and challenging situations seem like more than we can handle. We can think of these overwhelming feelings as the result of an unbalanced supply and demand of our emotional resources. How can meditation help?  By creating space in our minds, meditation allows us to discern which demands on our emotional and energy resources are valid and which aren’t. We begin to see the big picture with more clarity and a sense of openness, and this makes both our situation and our state of mind more workable.

Mindworks course in Working with Stress can help you gain perspective and reduce anxiety. This advanced meditation course features Mind Trainer Maria Camara, PhD, an experienced psychologist and meditation teacher who has studied stress from both perspectives. In addition to her guided meditations for working with stress, Maria provides insights into how to change your perception so you can cope better with stress now and prevent it from being a problem in the future.

How does meditation reduce stress?

Working with stress is part of modern life. When you experience stress and anxiety, you naturally look for antidotes, but some of the remedies you might turn to (pharmaceuticals, for instance) aren’t workable in the long term. In the beginning, they may give you some sense of relief, but in the long run they don’t change your perception of the problem–in truth, they often add to the problem. That’s why so many people who are searching for long-term solutions look to meditation for stress and anxiety relief. Mindfulness techniques, guided meditations for stress relief and healing, and mindfulness-based stress reduction training, help practitioners gain perspective and reduce anxiety. And stress relief meditation is easy to learn and implement, whether you’re already familiar with practice or not.

Many studies have confirmed the link between meditation and stress relief. How does meditation help relieve and reduce stress? By teaching you that you can be aware of stress at work, at school, in relationships, and so on without necessarily reacting within the usual fight or flight modes. For beginners, the best meditation to reduce stress is usually some form of guided mindfulness or relaxation meditation. There are dedicated guided meditations for working with stress and anxiety sufferers that provide natural stress relief. While meditation for stress reduction courses may usually be available at a local meditation or community center, nowadays people are looking for effective meditation online courses. To learn the ABCs of how to meditate to reduce stress, as well as some theory about how stress is generated and controlled, try taking the Working with Stress course, an 8-day meditation course, then sit straight and relax!
