The 5-day Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) retreat includes meditation instruction, short talks by the teacher(s), guided sessions of mindfulness meditation practice, including sitting
meditation, walking meditation, movement exercises and mindful everyday activities. Participants will keep Noble or Grand Silence throughout the 5 days. There will also be opportunities for individual conferences with the retreat facilitator(s).
The retreat is modeled on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) principles developed
by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli at the Center for Mindfulness in the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
NOTE: Prior experience with a personal meditation practice is highly recommended. If you are
new to mindfulness practice or would prefer an introductory program, you may consider the one
day introductory workshop, a weekend retreat, and/or the 8-week MBSR course.
