Mindfulness as a Wisdom Practice

Jul 09 - 14, 2017 Begins in 4 months
with Brad Lewis & Vignesh Swaminathan

Mindfulness teachings often isolate the practice from larger cultural, spiritual, and expressive contexts. This workshop goes the other direction: it integrates secular mindfulness practices with the wisdom of World philosophies and with the creative arts. The workshop is for those new to mindfulness, those with an established practice, and for psychotherapists interested in integrating mindfulness into their clinical work. It is co-taught by a psychiatrist and cultural scholar from New York University, and an experienced meditation teacher.
