A five-week, live-online class for anyone who has completed any 8-week MBSR or MBCT class or the 5-day Mindfulness Tools program, this offering supports greater steadfastness and investigation in practice. Together, we will consider what is being cultivated through practice and how we can bring our intention more fully to nurturing those resources that lie in each of us as human beings: Qualities such as patience, clarity, curiosity, kindness, love, and more…
As we continue to build a stronger relationship with ourselves through both formal and informal practice, we foster the ability to relate more wisely to others and to our environment. This community of practice supports sustained presence, relational skills (furthering some of the skills learned in MBSR and MBCT regarding communication), and recognizing and making wise choices in how we care for ourselves, moment to moment.
Practice, practice, practice; grounded in formal mindfulness practices originally introduced in the 8-week MBSR course with specific consideration of practice beyond “stress reduction” to include nourishing innate capacities and resources for a more vivid experience of wholeness, aliveness, and joy
Practice in a community as a support for sustained presence
Discerning more precisely what and how practice nourishes us. This will include deepening current mindfulness practices and/or return to mindfulness practices (review body scan, mindful movement, walking practice, sitting practice, and including loving-kindness, and mountain/ lake practice and others)
Exploring how we can “make the practice our own” to honor and respond to our authentic needs
Self-reflection and sharing practice experiences with others
Investigating how formal and informal practices can provide a synergy for a more wakeful life
Re-established relationship with formal practice; the possibility to refresh commitment to regular formal and informal practice
A 5-week community of support where relationships can continue on independently, based on the wishes of the participants
The potential for new insights into formal practice, informal practice and life itself
The growing facility to know and articulate what is true for you
The recognition and honoring of one’s own innate capacities to know, act, and live from one’s values with more deliberateness and choice
