Four Stages of Mindfulness

August 2-5 (Thursday dinner-Sunday breakfast)

Today mindfulness is broadly accepted as an effective method to reduce stress, pain and the effects of burn-out. Mindfulness implies observing our thoughts, feelings and sensations as they are, in a non-judgmental manner, without reacting to or trying to change them. We are thus more aware of the current moment.
The goal of this seminar is to provide participants the knowledge and skills necessary to apply mindfulness meditation principles and techniques in their own lives and in the lives of those around them. The talks address specific relevant topics such as: awareness of the body, reactions to stress, and training in specific mindfulness meditation techniques.
