Dear Folks; I hope you are all well as we lean toward the immense challenges around us. Over and over I am hearing and reading about the necessity for caring for ourselves and softening the sharp edges of stress during this time. To cultivate what we can do for ourselves and those in our lives.
Over and over in these podcasts or articles when the recommendations for self-care become specific, a generous contemplative practice, a mindfulness practice in some form is central especially now as our external activities of stress relief are out of touch; skiing, swimming, gathering in groups, restaurants, etc. Likewise, I am finding Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) at the center of those specific recommendations because it is so extremely effective in mitigating stress and has a rich base of research.
If you have been thinking about the MBSR course there is still room this spring as folks begin registering online. Set aside concerns about tuition if you have been laid off or having trouble with funding. Just reach out to me and we’ll make this work for you; scholarships, payments over time, discounts.
With your registration you’ll be included in a number online yoga classes of your choice: See Schedule as well as the Shared Meditation Evenings at 9pm each night and certain workshops as a way of doing and sharing home practice. Also, once the stay-at-home order has lifted you wil be my guest at a subsequent, in-person All Day MBSR Retreat.
Here is a link to more about MBSR with a link to details and ways of applying for the course starting on Thursday April 16th at 6pm
Kind Regards — Brant
