Graduate programs are designed for those who have already completed an 8-week MBSR program and would like to further develop mindfulness in their lives.
This program builds on the practice of loving-kindness introduced in MBSR. The practice develops a greater sense of connection by offering kindness to ourselves and to others. Pema Chodron, in her book, “Loving-Kindness, shows us how to discover the open, radiant heart in each of us. Research shows that through mindfulness, we can train our brains to be more compassionate, producing more joy and happiness in our lives.
The focus for this program will be:
This class is dedicated to discovering the path of freedom inherent in each of us. We do not have to wait to be free or postpone happiness for a later date. We can choose love and happiness even in the midst of turmoil or chaos. We can learn to trust life’s processes and free ourselves from past aggression, letting go of fear and opening to acceptance and forgiveness. The text for this course will be Jack Kornfield’s “No Time Like The Present.”
The focus for this program will include:
