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.

 


Retreat Details

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.

Space Between

Continual Drift

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

Confident Fear

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

Enlightened Dishes

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

Shoveling Snow

I definitely do not need much prompting to recognize the achiness and stiffness my body feels from shoveling snow today from Winter Storm Niko. Immediately I lament how out of shape I have become. Perhaps my age is catching up and it is all Read More

Finding A Seat, Literally

For the past while, my partner and I have found ourselves in a living space that was, for one reason or another, wanting in private space. This works well when we are frequently out and about in the world, as Read More

Just Breathe…

Today’s practice was so important for me.  I appreciated getting back to the basics of focusing on my breath.  This practice allowed me to regain my attention to what was important right here and now and let distractions fall away Read More
