Mindfulness Retreat: The Tools of Well-being (MBSR)

with Mathias Pongracz
October 5 / 5:00 AM - October 12 / 6:00 AM



Practices and teachings of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Inspired by the work of Jon Kabat Zinn, we will explore the tools of mindfulness and well-being to be able to face the demands and challenges of our lives. Among the practices: body scan méditation, sitting and walking meditation, mindfulness yoga and a period of silence during several days.

This retreat will help us integrate mindfulness in our everyday life and help us to access our internal resources, in order to better handle our stress.

This retreat is open to practioners of MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction), as well as everyone interested in the practice of mindfulness/awareness.

This 6-day intensive retreat is specifically recommended  for all who are practicing or teaching MBSR and those who intend to do so in the future. 



Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a programme of practical, scientifically-supported teachings to reduce stress, facilitate relaxation, and promote physical health and emotional well-being. Inspired by the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, this retreat offers tools for engaging the demands of our lives, including illness, chronic pain, personal crisis, or the ongoing challenges of a "full catastrophe". By relating directly with our bodies, emotions and our hearts, we'll discover the power of mindfulness to change our lives. Through sitting, walking, and body scan meditation practices - as well as mindful yoga - we will return to our lives better equipped to manage daily or extraordinary stress situations.
