Meeting Room 1 (Large Glass)

Learn how to use meditation to access the most sophisticated parts of our neuro-circuitry for emotion-regulation, and establish real-time techniques to use for our own self-care practices.

Stress, anxiety and physical challenges can all take a variety of shapes and forms. Humans are able to self-regulate and achieve stable and balanced states on purpose with very practical and simple techniques. This event addresses key points to help understand what is going on in the brain and nervous system while we are under stress, and more importantly, what are practical ways to cultivate our own wellness, alleviate stress and regulate our emotions when we need it. 

Participants will leave with practices in real-time techniques that can be used in day-to-day living. Plan to hear concepts related to our physiology and experience different meditation practices to soothe the nervous system.

This event is presented and sponsored by Rachel Wixey of Wixey Center for Wellness and is part of Better Toledo, a personal and professional development series to ensure “you will do better in Toledo.” Certificates of completion are available to participants who take part in three or more sessions in 2022. For group registrations please call 419-259-5293.
