ACE Foundation Programs
Dealing with chronic and/or acute pain is known to most of us. Yet when pain comes our way we often react automatically by pushing it away, moving past it as quickly as possible, or sweeping it under the rug. Although our tolerance and understanding of pain is limited, when we shift our attitude towards and our beliefs about pain, we create an opportunity for the pain to become a friend and perhaps, a great teacher.
In this workshop, we will examine our understanding of pain and develop a relationship with it. We will learn the connection between chronic pain and anxiety, stress and depression. We will explore how to transform lives from just living and managing the pain, to a life of thriving. We will learn the skills that include breathing practices, mindful movement and meditations that we can use and integrate into our daily living and bring to our clients.
