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 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.”

This program will focus on dealing with the difficulties that arise in life. It takes skill to maneuver through challenges, courage to move into pain, and determination to keep getting up over and over when we have been knocked down. We can also learn to be more empathetic in our interaction with others, acknowledging that they, too, are “fighting a great battle (Ram Dass).” Using Pema Chodron’s book, “When Things Fall Apart” along with the wisdom of others, we will explore ways to traverse life’s storms and flow more easily through our daily lives.
