MBSR 4 HOUR WORKSHOP: by John McLaughlin
February 27th, 1 to 5 pm @BHW   Cancelled: New Workshop TBA
Cost: $40
In this highly interactive and participatory 4 hour workshop we will have presentations and discussions related to stress and stress reduction covering some of the same topics discussed in the full 8 week MBSR course. We will focus on some of the more important unconscious and conditioned habits of mind and body that cause most of our stress and learn ways to interrupt these counterproductive “cycles of suffering”.  We will briefly discuss the science and research showing the effectiveness of MBSR on a variety of dis-eases including anxiety and depression.

More importantly we learn and engage in ancient eastern practices including breath meditation, mindfulness and body awareness exercises to lessen the deter mental physical and psychological effects of stress, allowing us to live with greater health, ease and well being.
Participants will:
  • Discuss and investigate the nature of stress; its causes and conditions
  • Analyze the role of thoughts, beliefs and perspectives in causing stress
  • Explore and develop the preeminent quality of mind; Mindfulness
  • Practice experiential skills related to meditation and body awareness exercises (Chi Gong & Yoga)
  • Learn new trans formative strategies to interrupt the conditioned habits that lead to stress

The MBSR curriculum is traditionally taught as an 8 consecutive week (2 hours per class) course which allows for time in between classes to practice the guided meditations and to “try out” our new realization in our daily lives.  I ask participants to commit to 45 minutes a day doing  the guided home practices. There is also a 6 hour silent weekend retreat near the end of the course.
The  classes are highly interactive and experiential and are limited to 25 people.  Each week we have a new presentation and discussion on various topics relating to stress and stress reduction. We also learn a new meditation and body awareness exercise in each class as well as talk about our mindfulness practice and how it relates to our weeks experiences.
MBSR is a fascinating journey into the core of our being.  Join us as we explore together what it is to be alive in this human form.
