    Fertility Support and Mindfulness 8-Week Program

    This 8-Week Program applies mindfulness to reduce the stress of infertility and enhance well-being. Mindfulness teaches how to skillfully work with your thoughts, emotions and body through all the challenges infertility presents.

    By using awareness to cope, you create a space where you can heal and develop new perspectives out of which better strategies and stronger options emerge. Over the eight weeks, we explore different ways to come off "automatic pilot" and cultivate qualities that will not only support you through your fertility challenge, but through the rest of your life.

    Each week presents new skills and topics, including mindfulness practices, cognitive skills, coping strategies, and life-style behaviours to reduce stress and enhance your well-being. The supportive group environment will improve feelings of sadness or isolation.

    Meetings are Wednesday evenings, plus one Saturday session.For more information about the content of the class, please see our Mindfulness Program page.
