The world is a better place when we are caring for the seniors in our communities. Sharing mindful awareness practices with seniors helps them to cope with anxiety, depression and other chronic health conditions; strengthen their capacity for compassion toward themselves and others; engage in their community with greater ease; and enhance the quality of their lives.
We are thrilled to be equipping the staff of various city agencies this year with mindfulness tools that lower their stress levels and help them maintain focus and calm in challenging situations. The Baltimore Station Executive Director commented, “I was struck by the openness and increased introspection among the staff. With SHINE, we created a space … so that regardless of staff position, they all began to relate positively to one another.”
