An Introduction to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.” ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
“Meditation – it’s not what you think!” ~ Bumper Sticker

Based on the MBSR curriculum that has been the initial gateway into regular meditation practice for so many people, this accelerated course will give participants the tools and techniques to begin their own practice of insight meditation based on following the breath and opening to sensations and sound. It is directed primarily at those who are interested in beginning a practice, but is also a valuable resource for those who have begun but would profit from some more direction and guidance.

Four Sunday afternoons, September 17 and 24, October 8 and 15, from 3 to 5pm in Sullivan Chapel. Co-sponsored by the Springboard Mediation Sangha and led by Deborah Cooper, an experienced MBSR teacher. There is no formal fee but a donation of $60 for the entire course is suggested. Register online at or for more information, contact Gerry Whelan at .
