Mindfulness meditation doesn’t change life. Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever. Meditation changes the heart’s capacity to accept life as it is. It teaches the heart to be more accommodating, not by beating it into submission, but by making it clear that accommodation is a gratifying choice.

Description

This workshop will introduce students to the practice of mindfulness meditation.  Mindfulness is the first step to developing an insight meditation or vipassana practice.

We focus on the often-neglected nuts-and-bolts of what to do and how to train our minds. We alternate periods of silent meditation with an exploration of what actually happened while we were meditating.

We will cover the practical aspects of

  • Posture
  • Cultivation of attention
  • Working with thoughts and the mind
  • Develop an attitude that fosters our openness to experience.
  • Application to clinical cases

This workshop is designed for those with no meditation experience as an opportunity to start a mindfulness meditation practice.  It can also serve to refresh an existing practice that has wained or plateaued.

Registration is limited to 15 to allow for personal attention.
