Are you a teacher, student, psychotherapist, or anyone who doesn't have time for an eight-week course in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, but is more flexible in August? This special immersion is modeled on "Mindfulness Tools for Living the Full Catastrophe" - an intensive adaptation of the MBSR program which is offered by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts. In addition to learning formal mindfulness practices and engaging in the cultivation of kind, curious and patient responses to the stresses of daily life, there will be mindful excursions into life in NYC. To enhance the course experience, registration includes a pass to the JCC gym and pool so you can add mindful movement to your daily experience.
