A Retreat in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Florence Meleo-Meyer, MS, MA
Based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s renowned program at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, this retreat teaches you the basics of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and how to apply it in your daily life. Florence Meleo-Meyer, Train the Trainer program director of Oasis Institute at the Center, engages you in sitting meditation, body scanning, and hatha yoga, and guides you in practicing and integrating mindfulness in your communications and other daily activities.
It Didn’t Start With You:
Break the Cycle of Inherited Trauma Through Family Constellations
Unexplained depression, anxiety, illness, financial challenges, unhappy relationships—the latest epigenetic research tells us that we can inherit the biological residue from traumatic events in our family history, leading to challenging outcomes. In this workshop, Mark Wolynn, author of the award-winning book It Didn’t Start With You, offers effective ways to break inherited patterns so you can live a healthier, happier, more fulfilled life. Through lectures, interactive group work, and family constellations, you experience firsthand that, although these patterns may not have started with you, they can end with you. This workshop is suitable for mental health professionals and anyone interested in personal healing.
