Workshop Details

This program is designed to integrate the practice of mindful awareness with directed heartfulness to facilitate growth, healing, and change. It is based on Mark Abramson's work as the director of Stanford's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program which he founded 20 years ago. The workshop introduces the practical application of techniques of mindfulness and heartfulness to transform emotional states and unleash the great potential for deep healing of the body. The goal is to learn new ways of relating to experience that allow greater opening, understanding, and the possibility of transformation.
"This work," writes the leader,"creates an increasing experience of gentleness, kindness, and respect for oneself and others as well as the beneficial effects on health that a kind mind brings to the body." The program offers guided practice in mindfulness meditation, body movement, breathing practices, and heart opening, interspersed with lecture and interactive discussion. While the practices are especially helpful for people who are experiencing emotional or physical concerns, the universality of the experience makes this program valuable for all. It is especially useful for psychologists, nurses, and others in the healing professions in working with their patients and clients.
