LMBB 1022 - Coping with Pain and Loss

  • NonCredit
View available sections

We often push away and try to control the pain, distress, and loss that we encounter in our lives. Through our mindfulness practice, we can examine our aversion, cultural conditions, and control instincts that drive our fear of discomfort and difficulty. We will explore how to interrupt the cycle of reaction, work with our fear, and ride the waves of discomfort and loss as we create a new relationship to our controlling instinct and with our physical condition.
Topics include:
• Interrupting the Pain Cycle
• Accepting Aging and Loss

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
