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.

Learning Objectives:
· To deepen the practice of mindfulness meditation
· To learn guidelines for increasing awareness in our interactions
· To recognize habitual ways we react to stress and anxiety in relationship
· To cultivate wholesome, and release unwholesome, mind states and actions
· To learn ways of listening to oneself and others more deeply

Prerequisite: MBSR foundation class or prior meditation experience.

Registration fee includes teacher support.
