It is hard to verbalise the surprisingly profound impact this experience (so much more than a course) has had on me. It has been so complete—spiritually,
emotionally, professionally and intellectually.
Patrick's experience is a common one when people come to MBSR.
However MBSR offers a rich and complex range of teachings and perhaps the course should be eight years long, not eight weeks!
This Revitalise my MBSR workshop has been designed to reconnect us with the liberating aspects of the program with different focuses being offered from time to time. This coming Sunday the focus will be on understanding the rationale of the practice and working with unruly emotions to help us feel more confident about how to apply our practice in everyday life.
It differs from the Day of Mindfulness as the day will not be in silence and there will be opportunity to discuss and explore specific challenges in life, and how to draw on the practice to meet those challenges. The group will have a maximum of 16 people.
Just like in the MBSR course we will use practice, discussion, poems, didactic teaching and all the marvellous moments that arise when a group of people gather to commune whole-heartedly - to reconnect with the rationale and the precious transformational experience of practicing mindfulness together.
