For those of you who would like to refresh your mindfulness practice during Winter/Spring 2019, there are a few options to choose from:
Next practice day for past participants of the MBSR course will be on. I’d really encourage you to take part in this mostly silent day as it can give your own practice a great boost.
Sunday 10th March in Baile Mhuire Day Care Centre, Balloonagh, Tralee 10.30 am – 4.30 pm.
Join current MBSR participants for this day of silent practice. The day will include a range of practices including body can, mindful movement, awareness of breathing and loving kindness.
This day is offered on a donation basis only but booking is essential. Please email me or text me on 087 2838171 if you’d like to take part.
I plan to offer again a special practice day for past participants of the MBSR course focusing on the psychology and philosophy underlying the curriculum of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction programme.
Please keep an eye on this page for confirmation of the date or email me here if you’d like to be reminded.
Those of you who have already taken part in the Mindfulness Based Stress (MBSR) programme may know that as well as emerging from the areas of stress psychology and physiology and neuroscience, the foundation of the Mindfulness Based Stress (MBSR) is based on core teachings from Buddhist philosophy. These teachings are still very much current and relevant to our everyday lives. In fact, some would say that the Buddha was a the forerunner in the understanding and development of cognitive behavioural therapy!
This special day will present some of these teachings in a practical and accessible way. We will consider questions such as:
What causes suffering in our lives? What prevents us from being happy and contented? How can these teachings support us in dealing with the challenges and stresses of our daily lives?
The day will include a presentation, guided reflections, group discussion and also…… plenty of practice.
