Touching and being touched, we create our world. —Gregory Kramer
Our lives are webs of social relationships and communication. In all relationships, we find joys and tensions, the wish that things be different, appreciation, longing and suffering. Often, we function in our relational lives as if we are asleep; being pulled by likes and dislikes, assumptions and judgments. Developing interpersonal mindfulness leads to being more fully present and caring with others and oneself. This class is based upon the practice of Insight Dialogue and was 10 years in the making — a collaboration between the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Metta Programs.
