This class includes discussion and experiential practices. While invited to share experiences, no one will be compelled to do so. You may share as much or as little as is comfortable for you.
For some, tinnitus is annoying; for others, it is so frustrating that it impacts their social participation and relationships with others. A short power point will be utilized to activate discussion about the thoughts and emotions which can emerge with tinnitus.
We will discuss why your brain is struggling with the tinnitus. Practices will include noticing what your brain is saying to you and how you can speak to your brain to bring calm.
We will also notice how where we place our attention affects our experience and how we can switch attention when any experience becomes too unpleasant and intense.
As all mindfulness, these are practices which will have to be continued at home for long-term success with being with your tinnitus.
This class will be delivered through a hybrid of in-person and Zoom, an online meeting tool.
