Stressed Life to Best Life
Facilitated by Heather Coate, LPC, EAW Counselor
Wednesday, April 22, 12 noon – 1pm AND Wednesday, April 29, 12 noon – 1 pm
This is a two-part series; participants are encouraged to attend both sessions, although it is not necessary. In part 1 (Stressed Life) we will examine stress in-depth exploring intensity, manifestations in everyday life including the fight, flight, freeze, and fawn stress personalities, and the brain’s inherent negativity bias. In Part 2 (Best Life) we identify tools and techniques that aid us in cultivating resilience to stress, including practicing happiness, self-regulation, and creating more meaningful connections.
Part 1: Wednesday, April 22
Part 2: Wednesday, April 29
Fall to Sleep
Led by Heather Nash, EAW Psychologist and Director
Thursday, April 23, 12 noon – 1 pm
Many of us are having a hard time sleeping these days; this workshop will focus on helping you improve the quality of your sleep! Participants will learn about sleep in general, factors affecting sleep, and how to optimize sleep. It is helpful for participants to track a week of sleep prior to the workshop with a sleep diary that can be found on the National Sleep Foundation’s website.
Couples and Finance$
Led by Shawnee McDowell, EAW Counselor
Tuesday, April 28, 12 – 1 pm
Money is so much a part of our daily lives, yet many of us don’t feel comfortable talking about it. Although we might have crossed our fingers and wished that the abundant love we felt and still feel for our partner would lead to financial harmony without any discussion, it hasn’t! This workshop will focus on how to identify the meaning we place on money, and how to have the conversations we might dread having, but this can improve how we communicate with and understand ourselves and our partners.
Grieving the Losses of COVID-19 and the Assumptive World
Led by Ann Collier, EAW Psychologist
Thursday, April 30, 12 noon – 1 pm
This program will address grief, COVID-19 and the loss of our assumptive world. We will look at the grief response, how to find meaning during the pandemic, how we may adapt and orient ourselves to these losses and finally, how we may restore our own sense of well-being.
Mindfulness for Modern Times

Mindfulness is more than just a buzzword. These time tested practices have brought peace and wisdom to human beings for millennia in various spiritual traditions.
