As we continue to move through an unprecedented global pandemic with as much as 50% of the world under ‘lockdown’ periods for repeated and prolonged time periods this year, we ask the key question – what does MBSR offer in the midst of this?
In this morning session, we will practice, inquire and dialogue on recent experiences of teaching MBSR in the midst of a global pandemic. We will engage in the practice of mindfulness as heartfulness, that holds non-judgement, open mind and warm hearts at the essential core.
We will also review key MBSR maps and metaphors from the wider teaching community and explore how they may serve our practice and teaching now and into the future as we move into new phases of living alongside COVID-19. This morning session is highly experiential, reflective, connective and collaborative.
