During this all day retreat we will advance our understandings of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness through our direct experience. The program contents stem from the highly respected Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction model originated by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center for Mindfulness. Participants will receive instruction and guidance in the practices of sitting and walking meditation, the body scan, mindful yoga, mindful eating, and some time spent in mindful silence. The qualities of compassion and loving kindness practices will be addressed as powerful supportive elements both in our clients’ healing process and for us as practitioners, as well as the role of Mindfulness in the treatment of trauma.
Your instructor is Paula Coyne, a qualified teacher of Mindfulness -Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) who has been teaching since 2001 (Licensed Psychologist, Registered Yoga Teacher, MA in Clinical Psychology.)
