ACT on Life for Women

This 9 week course offers women (includes anyone who self-identifies as a woman) a chance to learn skills that will help them live their lives more effectively. This course uses scientifically-supported techniques to help you:

  • Create A Rich And Meaningful Life
  • Deepen Relationships
  • Develop Self-Compassion
  • Be More Mindful And Present In Your Daily Life
  • Skillfully Navigate Life Obstacles
  • Disarm Anxiety And Depression
  • And Get Out Of Your Mind And Into Your Life!

When we get caught in struggles with difficult thoughts and feelings, we tend to lose contact with what’s important to us. In ACT on Life for Women, you’ll learn techniques based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to break the grip of unwanted thoughts and feelings and more fully engage your life. Amongst a community of other women, we will connect and dismantle common stories we carry that are often barriers to the full life we want and deserve to live. The facilitator of this course does not present herself as an expert imparting knowledge; rather, she is a fellow traveler who uses and practices ACT in her own life. You’ll learn how to choose valued directions and skillfully work with obstacles that get in your way. Our goal is to teach you skills that you can use to continue improving your life long after this course has ended.
