Help for Stress

Hood River psychologist Scott Rower, PhD will be offering a research-based course called Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).  It is an 8 week program for learning how to tame a busy mind.  It is created for people with no prior experience in meditation (but often benefits even long-time meditators).
You can think of it as a crash course, owner’s manual on how to get out of your head.
If you struggle with chronic stress & want to find a healthy way to address it then this might be helpful for you.
The course will teach you to… Identify stress triggersUnderstand how these affect your mind and bodyDevelop tools to create change & balance To learn more visit

Women and AutoImmunity: A Mindfulness-Based Support Group.

If you or someone you love is a woman with an autoimmune condition, please join Heather and our peers as we dive into the difficulties, and practice mindfulness based techniques for relief when living with a chronic condition. Group meets one Saturday/month (starting this Saturday, January 13) at 11 AM at Heather’s downtown HR counseling office, 116 Third St, Suite 205. See our FB page or register at EventBrite. This event is FREE for members of Healthy Connections (that’s You!). You can come any month, this is not a series, a class or a closed group. We appreciate knowing who is attending, so an RSVP is required to Heather by Thursday prior to the group. If less than 3 women are planning to attend, we will cancel the group.
