An Evening with Dr. Robert Béliveau (in French)
Mindfulness, the Way to Health and Peace
Stop living in fear. Live in the moment, breathe, make space, take a break. Make this an essential, vital habit. The practice of mindfulness invites us to open the heart (the practice of compassion), take better care of the body (know your limits) and cultivate a healthy mind (wisdom). Simple, accessible and free, it offers to anyone a path to a life of joy, peace and freedom. A life that has meaning or to which we can give meaning in a culture that has lost its way. A meeting not to be missed. Overall, it is possible, everything is possible. The talk will be given in French.

Dr. Robert Béliveau
After practicing family medicine in Quebec for twenty-three years, Robert Béliveau has chosen to take his career in an unexpected direction, but entirely consistent with his beliefs. He decided to devote himself to teaching methods of stress reduction. His encounter with Jon Kabat-Zinn, renowned for having integrated the approach of mindfulness meditation in traditional medicine, was decisive. He leads mindfulness-based stress reduction workshops at the Épic center of the Montreal Heart Institute, prevention of heart disease. He is co-author with Jacques Lafleur, psychologist, of Les quatre clés de l’équilibre personnel. www.gerermonstress.com
