Mindfulness for Animal Advocates with Lani Muelrath
Reactivity rules much of our days. Stress eating, irritability, zoning out online, or obsessing over one thing or another — no doubt there's at least one of these reactions to stress that's familiar to each of us. Living vegan or vegetarian in an omnivorous world has its own set of challenges. These challenges range from tension as relationships shift to compassion fatigue as we try to help a seemingly infinite sea of animal victims. Join our Activist Appreciation Month webinar to learn how to cut through stress, reduce reactivity, build resilience, and restore equanimity with mindfulness instructor and The Mindful Vegan: A 30-Day Plan for Finding Health, Balance, Peace, and Happiness author Lani Muelrath.
Mindfulness is a specific form of mental training and a particular kind of awareness you bring to your daily activities. Mindfulness leads to reductions in reactivity and the cultivation of positive brain states. With the simple tools of mindfulness, you can learn to cultivate resilience and more easily navigate difficult conversations, upsetting situations, and emotional stress.
Getting started with mindfulness training—a practical, non-sectarian, science-based practice for decreasing reactivity—begins with four straightforward steps. Lani shares these steps, research about the benefits of mindfulness training, and specific tools for practicing mindfulness for managing stress and creating a healthier lifestyle in our webinar.
Join our Activist Appreciation Month webinar with Lani Muelrath on Thursday, February 15, 10 am – 11 am PT (1 pm – 2 pm ET). You can join this live webinar via phone or online, or listen to the replay later.
