California Lutheran University Community Counseling Services will visit the Ojai Library on Saturday, March 14, at 1pm to present a Mindfulness Workshop.

Life is a struggle at times. Everyone has to manage difficult thoughts, emotions, and stressors. Sometimes we get so caught up in our difficulties that they consume our life. Life can also be magnificent. This workshop teaches participants the practice of mindfulness. This workshop discusses a variety of tools such as meditation, grounding techniques, and body scans, which allow one to become fully present and use a nonjudgmental outlook on life. Through engaging activities, we hope to encourage participants to foster a new approach to their struggles through insight and self-compassion.

The California Lutheran University Community Counseling Services clinics provide therapy to children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and families. They run the largest university-based, low-fee community counseling clinics in California, providing over 12,000 low-fee therapy sessions each year, primarily to Ventura County residents. All therapy sessions are provided by Master’s and Doctoral students who are supervised by licensed psychologists and marriage and family therapists.

This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at (805) 218-9146.
