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.
With the polarizing tendencies so evident in our current culture, it is even more important to be mindful of one’s speech and actions.
Through self-awareness and self-reflection, we can wake up to the habitual patterns and potentially harmful actions that push us farther away from each other and instead let kindness and compassion guide us.
Realizing that all human beings are vulnerable and fighting their own battles, we can make a conscious decision to awaken our hearts and commit to doing whatever it takes to help while learning to let go and relax into life.
The text for this course will be Pema Chodron’s “Welcoming the Unwelcome.”
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:
Living With An Awakened Heart Program (Spring) – Welcoming the Unwelcome* by Pema Chodron
Starting Where You Are Program (Fall) – No Time Like the Present* by Jack Kornfield
