    A nourishing day of continuous practice together.

            

    During this day-long retreat we will be guided in a sequence of meditation and mindfulness practices including: sitting meditation, the body scan, walking meditation (indoors and out), gentle mindful yoga, and contemplative practices like the loving-kindness meditation.

    The retreat is designed especially for those who have taken Mindfulness Northwest classes. A day to gather, see old friends, and reinvigorate our practice together. Others with teacher-led meditation experience or a background in contemplative practice are invited to join as well. If you are totally new to meditation this day may be a challenge but you're welcome to inquire; and, for some, "jumping in" is a great way to start.

      Learn the healing art of mindfulness in this well-respected class.

      Are you interested in mindfulness and its potential for enhancing health and well being? Are you under stress? Are you struggling with chronic conditions such as chronic pain, depression, and anxiety? Are you feeling as if life is too much? Or do you simply want to live a fuller life with greater balance?

      Recent research shows Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) reduces chronic pain and boosts the immune system; addresses painful mental states like depression and anxiety; minimizes emotional reactivity and promotes well-being; increases flexible attention and sharpens mental focus; and actually thickens grey matter in the areas of empathy and problem-solving. Happiness is a delightful by-product.

      Course details:
      Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is a structured 8-week course on mindfulness that reduces stress, and promotes health and well-being.  This highly participatory, practical course includes:

      • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
      • Gentle stretching and mindful yoga
      • Inquiry exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life
      • Group dialogue and small group exercises
      • Daily home assignments
      • Guided audio files for home practice
      • a 50-page workbook with short readings, a guide to the course, and resources to support your ongoing investigation of mindfulness

      Please see the MBSR page for full details about this well-researched class designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness at the UMass Medical Center.
