Workshop

Framework for Mindful Living

A 5-Day Intensive in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Jul 14 - Jul 19 2019 Rhinebeck, NY
Learn how to practice and integrate mindfulness into daily life with this MBSR intensive for professionals and those who want to live healthier, more engaged lives.

Have you felt an inner call to approach your life with more wisdom, skill, and compassion? Have you wished to engage your mind and body in ways that can support greater clarity and resilience? Are you interested in learning about and addressing root causes of stress that can make a difference in your life and the lives of students, patients, and clients you serve?

Mindfulness is an innate resource in all human beings that is often overlooked. This workshop offers intentional, step-by-step guidance to cultivate strength and familiarity with this human birthright of awareness, naturalness, openness, and warmth. Through the practices of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), you explore your relationship with the body, mind, heart, and one another in an environment rich in curiosity and engagement.

Based on the world-renowned MBSR course, this 5-day, residential program invites this inner exploration as we investigate the framework of the science and practice of mindfulness and its potential to impact the quality of one’s life. This intensive includes:

  • Full introduction and guidance of the formal MBSR meditation practices
  • Introduction and explication of the science and mechanisms of mindfulness
  • How perception and conditioning shape how we experience the world, and how mindfulness can begin to uncouple automatic, habitual reactivity for clearer seeing and more creative responding
  • Tools for deeper listening—to ourselves and others
  • Methods and applications for bringing brief, informal mindfulness practices through the day to rebalance oneself emotionally, mentally, and physically
  • Introduction of appropriate workplace applications of mindfulness practices for teachers and healthcare providers

Framework for Mindful Living is a unique opportunity for those who may not have access to an 8-week MBSR class. The workshop is also appropriate for those who would like to deepen or reinvigorate their mindfulness meditation practice, and for health professionals who wish to apply mindfulness in their work with others. In a supportive environment, there is time and space to inquire, reflect, and come close to ourselves in ways that allow for learning, insight, and healing.
