Event Details

A four week class for alumni of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, though others are welcome!

One of the powers of mindfulness is that it brings greater awareness of long-held resentments toward ourselves and others. This can become an obstacle to our practice and it is essential that we face resentments and the inner-critic with a heart of forgiveness and compassion. These four sessions for MBSR alumni will give participants an opportunity to check-in and to integrate the seeds of forgiveness and compassion into our daily practice.
