What to Expect During ReMind Group Sessions

A certified practitioner teaches a different mind-body technique each week. Each session includes an explanation of the technique and how to use it, along with guided practice. The mind-body techniques taught include:

  • Autogenic training – A mind-body technique for deep relaxation.
  • Breathing – Conscious, controlled breathing techniques that help you clear your mind and focus on the moment.
  • Drawings and journals ­– The practices of using words and art to express feelings.
  • Guided imagery – A form of meditation that focuses on calm, peaceful images in your mind.
  • Meditation – An ancient mind-body practice that teaches the mind to quiet and focus on the present moment.
  • Movement – Uses dance and movement to integrate your mind, body and spirit.
  • Nutrition and mindful eating – Learning how to use food and a practice of eating with intention to care for your body, enjoy your food and its effects on your body.

ReMind groups are small to help you feel more comfortable and safe about sharing experiences. Thoughtfully talking about experiences in a supportive group helps you relax, reminding you who you are, while renewing your unique and evolving self. ReMind Group participants have reported:

  • Decreased anxiety and depression
  • Less anger
  • Reduced fatigue and confusion
  • Better sense of well-being
  • Increased energy
  • Feeling more engaged in life
