What if I need to miss a class or the Day of Mindfulness?
This happens for lots of people over the eight week program.
In some locations, there are a few courses happening in any week, so you can arrange to attend one of the other locations for that week. If that is not possible in your area, the course book is quite detailed in terms of covering the material each week, and you will be able to keep practicing and arrange to check in with your teacher by phone or email about your process that week.
Missing the Day of Mindfulness is also sometimes inevitable. This day-long retreat is held every quarter, so you can always attend next time to make up this practice time.
