Monthly Sessions

How to Deal with Suffering Even with Life's Toughest Challenges

This is the monthly episode of the St. Margaret Foundation Mindful Break - a free 30-minute video with instruction on mindfulness, relaxation practices, and a short meditation to help you revitalize your life. St. Margaret Foundation recognizes the overwhelmed nature of today’s reality - juggling work, family, life, health issues, emotional turmoil, mental health issues, and other concerns.

It is difficult to face challenges when we are already suffering. Emotions are hard to navigate in times of crisis. Along with a short meditation, this episode will discuss the cause for unhappiness, the truth about suffering and how to stop it, how our culture affects our suffering, the path to freedom of positive change, and several new habits to enjoy life.
