Day one of the challenge complete! I sat down to do my daily challenge late last night, so I’m posting this on Day Two. Hopefully, by the end of the challenge, I’ll be posting these on the same day. But, Read More
It is such a joy to hear Sharon’s voice again. Day 2. This is the third time I am doing this challenge. Even though I have never met her, her work and her podcasts have had a big influence on Read More
Tuning into my breath brought me home to myself this morning and gave me space to be gentle and present. Sitting on my couch before my son woke up for school, I enjoyed feeling my breath flowing in and out of Read More
In this one-of-a-kind event, we come together in the heart of NYC with leaders across multiple disciplines with business leaders, social change advocates, and mindfulness teachers to explore the opportunities and challenges of living with greater mindfulness and presence in our age.
Sharon will be speaking on the topic of technology and the roll it plays in our practice.
We live in a time when meditation and mindfulness are becoming widespread in individual lives and institutions, teaching us tools for tapping into our capacity for authentic presence, stronger relationships, fulfilling work, and increased resilience and well-being.
This immersion provides a special opportunity for those who are interested in or currently using mindfulness in professional settings to dive into practice and share space with one of the pioneers who brought these practices to the United States, Sharon Salzberg. Sharon is one of America’s most well-known Buddhist meditation teachers and authors, and this week she is joined by Judson Brewer, MD, PhD, whose insight into the scientific background of these practices will inspire you with astounding evidence-based information highlighting the profound effects of mindfulness.
Reset your nervous system, replenish your energy levels, soothe your heart, sharpen your mind, and nourish your body with a week dedicated to your self-care on all levels. Substantiate your experiential knowledge of the benefits of mindfulness with cutting-edge scientific discoveries. Expand your knowledge of the MBSR curriculum with a deeper understanding of its philosophy and practices.
You will experience new levels of self-awareness, happiness, and connection as you learn:
- The scientific underpinnings of mindfulness
- Classical descriptions and meanings of mindfulness
- A range of practices
- The relationship between methods of mindfulness, loving-kindness, and compassion
- Practical ways to share this work as educators, clinicians, researchers, and those in the helping professions.
Experience the sweetness and ease of daily formal meditation practice (both insight and loving-kindness), meetings with the teachers, talks, guidance, and extended periods of silence. Gain confidence in your capacity to share mindfulness in your own workplace or community. Return home feeling rejuvenated, re-inspired, and recommitted to setting time aside each day for silence.
This has been a very rewarding and gratifying month as I have been able to re-establish a focused and steady practice. I have found it easier to slip into the space between and experience the freedom and peace that it offers. Thank you Sharon Salzberg, your Read More
It was difficult to remain focused during today’s lovingkindness towards others meditation. As I directed my attention to the various categories, I could not help but feel an immediate reaction of judgement. I would then wander off on tangents, recalling what I Read More
Fear is made up of many emotions. One that seems to play a large role for me is my level of confidence. Take for example, skiing (I went today with my family, so this is fresh in my mind). When I am Read More
I try to get chores and household tasks done as quickly as possible. I guess scrubbing dishes keeps me from more exciting activities that I can do… even though I will probably not be doing anything much more exciting in Read More
