Mindful Living: Teachings and Practices from Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
June 27–30, 2013
Inspired by the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, this extended weekend 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 to confidently integrate mindfulness into daily life. Recommended for newcomers as well as people with prior experience in mindfulness disciplines.
