Learn how to integrate mindfulness into daily life with mindfulness experts Florence Meleo-Meyer and Karen Sheffield-Abdullah.

Florence Meleo-Meyer describes two ways you can bring meditation into your life: formal and informal practice.

Have you longed for greater resilience and courage in the challenging times we have been living through? Have you wished to cultivate deeper friendship with yourself and others while maintaining distance for safety?

Based on the world-renowned Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, this 5-day, residential program invites 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. Together, we learn to:

  • Invite inner exploration as we experience the formal MBSR meditation practices
  • Understand the science and mechanisms of mindfulness
  • Engage mind and body in ways that can support greater clarity and resilience
  • Investigate 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
  • Gain access to tools for deeper listening—to ourselves and others

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

This workshop is a unique opportunity for those who may not have access to an 8-week MBSR class. It is also appropriate for those who would like to deepen their practice, and for health professionals who wish to apply mindfulness in their work.

Please note that Omega will not be providing yoga mats to borrow, so you must bring one with you or purchase a mat at the Omega Store.
