General description of training:
This is the gold-standard mindfulness course created by Jon-Kabat Zinn. It can serve as an excellent beginner course to learn about mindfulness, establish a regular practice for your own self-care, as well as to incorporate mindfulness into your clinical practice. Backed by neuroscience and ancient compassion-based practices, this highly participatory, evidence-based program combines meditation, mindful movement (gentle yoga), group discussion, and inquiry in a supportive learning environment to teach class participants how to use mindfulness to relate differently to stress. Practicing this powerful, integrative approach tapping into and mobilizing innate inner resources for healing and well-being empowers participants to explore habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and acting, while learning practical ways to integrate mindfulness into daily life, and, to build and sustain a personal mindfulness practice.
