Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course
with Dr. Kim Sogge
Begins Tuesday, Janaury 22nd
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Are you ready to face the full catastrophe of your life?
This 8-week mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) course is based on the curriculum developed by Kim's teachers, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Dr. Saki Santorelli of the University of Massachussetts Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare and Society.
MBSR teaches beneficial mindfulness practices from several Buddhist traditions in a non-sectarian, compassionate manner. It is a wonderful way to initiate a meditation practice, or to reinforce a longstanding practice. Excellent scientific research has supported the many physical, emotional, and psychological benefits of the mindfulness practices taught in MBSR to those facing the myriad accumulated stresses of living.
In this course participants will benefit from Dr. Sogge's capacity to create a safe, warm environment in which to playfully explore the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation as an approach to healing and stress reduction.
A half-day silent practice retreat is included after session four, on Saturday, February 23rd, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. A course workbook and practice CDs are included in course cost.
Cost: $595.00 per person. Fee includes: 8 weekly classes, half-day silent retreat, course workbook and practice CDs.
Receipts may be available for reimbursement from extended health plans, with a referral from a physician.
