Becoming more ‘stress-hardy’ can lead to better life-long health. The MBSR program, developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical center by Jon Kabat-Zinn, integrates mindfulness meditation (moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness) with a profound level of inquiry into its relevance to daily life. MBSR can bring changes in physical and psychological symptoms, greater energy, improved self-esteem, and increased ability to cope with pain and stress. This course includes instruction in mindfulness meditation, gentle stretching and yoga, group dialogue and inquiry, along with daily practice support materials. With Elaine Retholtz, MBSR teacher and acupuncturist in private practice. For more information call 646.505.5726. Co-sponsored by NY Insight Meditation Center. (more)REGISTER
