Event description

Description

This 8 week Beginning the Adventure of Mindfulness course offers support for those who have completed an introductory level course in meditation such as MBSR, MBCT, MiCBT, MSC, or a weekend or week long insight meditation retreat.

The Beginning the Adventure of Mindfulness course equips those previously introduced to mindfulness in a structured, passive recipient training format for a longer, wilder journey of integrating mindfulness deeply into their lives through deepening connection with core mindfulness practices, didactic teaching, reflective inquiry in community, and homework that explores the dharma roots of all of secular mindfulness interventions.

It is the intention of the Beginning the Adventure of Mindfulness course to assist students to move from being on a guided tour of their own minds to being confident and well equipped adventurers in awareness, established in practice, and able to embody mindfulness in both formal and informal practices in the flow of every day life.

This first 8 week course will explore the foundational insight meditation teachings and practices underlying all of the 8 week secular mindfulness based interventions so familiar in the modern marketplace. This course is ideal for those who wish to continue to develop and deepen a daily meditation practice and further their understanding of the profound commitment to freedom, joy and liberation from suffering in the traditions underpinning most secular mindfulness interventions.

Sessions will include silent practice, teaching on mindfulness from an IMTA or MBSR certified mindfulness teacher, reflective inquiry, reading lists, home practices, and guided audios.

Who: Recommended for students with some prior introduction to mindfulness practice and an interest in deepening daily practice

What: This is not a mindfulness based intervention course, nor is there a focus on alleviation of symptoms. The purpose of this course is to strengthen the foundations for awakening of the heart-mind relying on the teaching, writing and practices in the Insight Meditation tradition.

When: 3-5pm Thursdays starting January 2019

Course Dates: January 10, 17, 24, 31, February 7, 14, (no class Feb 21), February 28, March 7, 2019.
