Mindfulness, Insight, Liberation: The Foundations of Mindfulness-Based Modalities and Research (MBMR)

Northeast USA  

January 24, 2015toJanuary 31, 2015

Insight Meditation Society

With Christina Feldman, John Peacock, and Chris Cullen

This retreat is specifically designed for professionals involved in mindfulness-based modalities. Educators, clinicians, and researchers engaged in teaching or training in mindfulness-based approaches are welcome to attend.

The course is an invitation to extend and deepen personal experience of insight meditation, which is rooted in the cultivation of mindfulness. In the company of peers and colleagues, retreatants will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as taught in the Satipaṭṭhâna discourse given by the Buddha, the foundational teaching of all contemporary mindfulness-based applications. This is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion in the classroom of our lives, nurturing a liberated and compassionate heart.

All members of this retreat’s teaching team are involved in training mindfulness-based professionals.

Each day will offer a sustained schedule of formal meditation practice (both insight and metta, the teaching of boundless friendliness), meetings with the teachers, talks, and guidance, all within an environment of silence. A familiarity with formal practice is assumed.

Yuka Nakamura will assist the teaching team. An optional daily period of mindful yoga will be offered by Luis F. Sierra.

CE credits are available for psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, and social workers. An additional fee of $50 will be payable at the end of your retreat when you receive your certificate.
