The half-day mindfulness meditation retreat provides a valuable opportunity to get a taste of the practices that are offered in the world-renowned 8 week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. In the retreat, you will have an opportunity to strengthen your personal mindfulness practice and continue integrating the practices of choice into your daily life.
You will also have the opportunity to be in community with others while practicing mindfulness, and having the support of the teacher/s and each other. The teacher/s will guide meditation practices that include sitting, walking, eating, body scan, and yoga movements. Loving-kindness and mountain meditation practices will also be included, along with two wisdom talks about the power of the mindful qualities of gratitude and equanimity. Poems will be included throughout the day as well, and the event ends with a group sharing exercise and closing ceremony.
