Check Your Head: Depression Group for Men (MSP)

This 8-week Meditation-based Depression Group is for men suffering in silence. We will teach you how to diminish and eventually stop the constant suffering in your head through the ancient lens of insight meditation (aka “mindfulness meditation”). Through easy-going teachings, Q&A, discussion and meditation practise we provide a raft to help you “check your head” by returning to your own basic sanity. Let the power of group process and meditation keep you afloat in these trying times. **A medical diagnosis is a prerequisite for this group. Next March 17th - May 5th, Thursdays 5:00-6:30pm.
