Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (8-week series)

Copper Beech Institute, West Hartford, CT

 

ORIENTATION: Monday, January 7, 2019 from 9:30am-11am

WHEN: Class meets on Mondays from 9:30am until 12pm, starting January 15, 2019 (no class on February 11) with an all-day retreat on Sunday, February 23rd and course ending on March 11, 2019

DESCRIPTION: Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life. It is a way of taking charge of your life, a way of doing something for yourself that no one else can do for you — consciously and systematically working with your own stress, pain, illness, and the challenges and demands of everyday life. Restoring within yourself a balanced sense of well-being requires increased awareness of all aspects of self, including body and mind, heart and soul. Mindfulness-based stress reduction is intended to ignite this inner capacity and infuse your life with awareness.

The Undefended Heart (A six-week course in self compassion)

Copper Beech Institute, West Hartford, CT

 

WHEN: Class meets on Wednesdays January 9, 16, 23, 30, February 6, 13, 2019 from 10-12pm.

DESCRIPTION: Mindful practice is instrumental in learning to harness our attention into the present moment. To fully embrace the present moment, we must have inner clarity, connection and compassion.

This six-week course is a deep dive into self-discovery and self-compassion. It is through the cultivation of self-compassion that we can tame our inner critic, identify our core wounds and triggers, set healthy boundaries (both inner and outer), work with challenging relationships, and learn how to meet our own “unmet” needs. We will discover how to create the conditions to awaken to our worthiness and live with an undefended heart.

Mindfulness is a limitless tool for self-discovery. It is an experiential process, meaning that you cannot just read about mindfulness to understand the process and receive its benefits. You actually have to practice and develop the skill to be present.
