    At the heart of mindfulness practice is awareness. The moment-to-moment awareness of thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and responses to the environment and complexities of day-to-day life. Jon Kabat-Zinn, also known as Mr. Mindfulness, states that “mindfulness is the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally”.

    All are welcome to explore the theoretical foundations of mindfulness through group interaction, mindfulness exercises, and simply feeling calmer in mind and body.

    For further information about joining the program, contact Mickey Gurbin at 519-238-2362 x223 or Patricia Baker at 519-238-2362 x235.

    A great place to share the challenges of living with Parkinson's disease, and to learn strategies to cope.

    The aim of this group is to enhance knowledge on specific topics related to Parkinson’s disease and to provide opportunities to talk with each other, ask questions to occasional guest speakers, and share resources. The group’s goal is to create a network in the community where people affected by Parkinson’s Disease feel supported and encouraged. The group aims to facilitate personal growth, empowerment, and increased knowledge and understanding of the disease.

    The Parkinson’s support group was created in response to an identified need in the community for individuals and their caregivers who live with Parkinson’s Disease. The group works in partnership with the Parkinson’s Society of Southwestern Ontario.

    For more information, contact the GBACHC occupational therapist at 519-238-2362 x241. The group runs virtually on the last Monday of every month, with some exceptions.
