Our Brain When We Grieve
Grief, whether it is caused by a death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job/home/beloved pet, is experienced by our brain and felt in our bodies. Discover what is happening in the brain which impacts so greatly our mental, emotional, and physical responses to loss -- and what we ourselves can do to help soften our pain. While not a support group, this course is helpful if you are working through grief on your own, are in a support group, are in the helping professions, or are simply interested in the brain. No class on 4/20.

Re-Programming the Anxious Brain
Anxiety is so common these days. It causes significant health problems and diminishes our quality of life. However, it IS possible to change. In this course, we’ll see WHY humans are anxious / WHY we experience anxiety, HOW it happens in our brain and body / HOW it impacts us and our life. Over the last 3 of 5 classes, we’ll learn scientists-recommended anxiety-minimizing techniques and match them with voluntarily shared anxieties of class participants. The instructor is a Certified Life Coach who has used the growing science of the brain to help others change. No class on 4/20.
