Workshop

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Insight Meditation Retreat

Oct 04 - Oct 11 2019 Rhinebeck, NY
Cultivate a continuity of meditation practice engendering stability, tranquility, focus, and resources for transformation with leading MBSR teachers.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is accessible while it is grounded in wisdom principles that support increased awareness of and investigation into the causes of stress. Led by MBSR teachers who are leaders in the field, this 7-day silent retreat explores, through direct experience, the deep roots that inform MBSR. Through mindfulness meditation, exploration of perception, stress science, and engagement with the wisdom of the body, you are empowered to participate in your own health and well-being, cultivating a continuity of practice engendering stability, tranquility, focus, and resources for transformation. In addition, evening talks illuminate key elements of the causes and relief of stress, pain, and suffering, as well as individual and group meetings to discuss meditation practice. You receive support to deepen understanding and strengthen your own personal practice, while cultivating the innate capacity for resilience and insight.

Firmly grounded in respect and kindness, this retreat is an important experiential learning for all who are interested in turning toward life in all its richness and wonder.

For those interested in teaching MBSR or for those who currently teach, it offers an essential experience as it is through one’s own depth of practice that we are able to support others.
