All of us have an innate capacity to experience well being, strength, and confidence, even in the face of stress, pain, or illness. In order to enhance that capacity, we introduce the power of mindfulness, the practice of meeting each moment with an open heart and mind. This week-long silent retreat – based on the MBSR teachings developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli at the University of Massachusetts Medical School – includes mindfulness meditation practice and instructions, talks by senior teachers, movement exercises, and contemplative practices. Mindfulness Meditation Retreat is suitable for mindfulness teachers or aspiring teachers, and fulfills the retreat prerequisite for attending Oasis Institute training programs.
