Omega Takes Leading Role in Mindfulness Movement: Brings Training & Learning Opportunities to New York City
Tickets on Sale for 1-Day Training with Jack Kornfield at the New York Society for Ethical Culture & An Evening with Jon Kabat-Zinn at Lincoln Center
RHINEBECK, NY – Omega Institute for Holistic Studies today announced two upcoming events in New York City featuring leading experts in mindfulness. First, on November 12, 2016, Jack Kornfield, PhD, will lead The Essence of Buddhist Psychology, a 1-day training for meditators and mental health professionals, at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. Omega will offer a second event on December 9, 2016, at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall titled Intimacy With Awareness: The Healing & Transformative Potential of Mindfulness with Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, appropriate for newcomers and longtime practitioners of mindfulness.
“We’re excited to see a growing movement of mindfulness applied across a range of fields and institutions, from neuroscience to education, from corporations to prisons, and beyond. These simple and profound tools increase human capacity for healing, insight, well-being, and compassion in life,” said Carla Goldstein, chief external affairs officer at Omega.
In this training, individuals and health-care professionals are invited to study the fundamental principles of Buddhist Psychology, combining practical examples, teaching stories, visionary wisdom, and case studies.
