Learn Mindfulness Meditation with Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

 Get control of your negative thinking – and the moods that go with it.

Learning mindfulness also helps you increase your contact with the beauty of the present, and to live your life more fully.

New Mindfulness Workshops start May 9.

You probably have lots of negative thinking. These toxic thoughts may have led to a lot of self-doubt or anxiety, a history of depression, or just a general sense of being adrift and out of control.

This is not a “one size fits all” solution. This mindfulness workshop is offered only within a small, intimate group, after you meet individually with your teacher, so there is plenty of time to address individual concerns.

The  MBCT workshop teaches mindfulness skills combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques. Teaching occurs in 8-weekly sessions plus a Mindfulness Day.

MARK WILLIAMS ON MINDFULNESS

In each class there is a guided meditation and extensive discussion with guidance from the teacher; much learning occurs during this discussion…. there are no bad questions.  Then there is a presentation of new skills, discussion, and explanation of how to do the home practices for the coming week. Each week there is an intention that participants do about 45 minutes of daily mindfulness activity.

To start registration, or to ask questions, please use the  CONTACT form or call 917-202-5148.

HOW DOES IT HELP?

The workshop includes instruction in mindfulness meditation practice, body awareness, group dialog and inquiry, and provides 4 hours of guided meditations.

The workshop helps people reduce the power of negative thinking, helps people keep their moods more stable, helps people live more fulfilling lives.  It does this by helping people learn to focus their attention onto present experience, without judgement. When noticing the present, they are not ruminating about the past, or worrying about the future… and that in itself is of value.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE 8 SESSIONS?

We typically start with a live, guided meditation, and discuss it immediately after it ends. Much learning occurs here, as there is no chance for the experience to get fuzzy from the passage of time, and plenty of time to explore the difficulties that come up. Next, we talk about the daily home practice from the previous week.   Much is to learned by discussing any obstacles that have come up. Then new material is presented and discussed, and finally home practice for the coming week is reviewed.

INCLUDES Day of Mindfulness

Participants can attend a free Day of Mindfulness, held on Saturday March 25.  Many report that this day helps solidify the mindfulness practices they have been learning. They also report experiencing routine existence in a new and vital way.

IS THIS A NEW AGE WORKSHOP?

It is both new age, and scientifically validated. The workshop is based on the MBSR program created by Jon Kabat Zinn about 30 years ago. Twelve years ago three world-renowned psychologists modified that, adding principles of cognitive-behavioral treatment to create Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). This workshop has been researched with control groups, and replicated, all successfully. It has been found to be as effective as anti-depressants in certain circumstances.

It is the basis for a lot of the most exciting and innovative treatments now being developed in psychotherapy. Donald Fleck has taught this workshop 30 times over 9 years. It is clear that it can bring  greater energy, improved self-compassion, and relief from the turbulence of stress, emotions and negative thoughts
