Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction: Five-day Intensive with Janet Solyntjes
July 26–31, 2011
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program of practical, scientifically supported teachings to reduce stress, facilitate relaxation, and promote physical health and emotional well-being. Inspired by the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, this five-day retreat offers an in-depth look at mindfulness tools for engaging the demands of our lives and for deepening the inquiry into fundamental health and wholeness. Through sitting, walking, and body scan meditation practices and mindful yoga—as well as periods of silence—we will return to our lives better equipped to manage stress, and with confidence, to integrate mindfulness into daily life. Recommended for newcomers as well as people with prior experience in mindfulness disciplines.
