We learned how Vipassana meditation informs Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program. We were instructed systematically in Vipassana meditation – both sitting and walking and in mindful yoga. We experienced how to steady your mind, being open to insight, and develop profound clarity and depth in our meditation practice. Bob teached the traditional four foundations of mindfulness, combined with training in loving-kindness and compassion, through daily silent sitting, walking, yoga, meditation talks and personal meetings with the teacher.

In the last 35 years Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and other Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBI) have spread exponentially throughout the world. Mindfulness has become very popular, a ”hot item” in medicine, neuroscience, psychology, education, and business and yet at times, little is known of it’s origins. This retreat will explore and emphasize how the Western Insight (Vipassana) Meditation Tradition influences mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and all mindfulness-based interventions (MBI). MBSR is derived most importantly from mindfulness meditation, along with stress psychology, and group process.

PLEASE NOTE: We also organized Mindfulness Practice Day with Bob
Sat, June 3rd 2017 in Helsinki Making Peace: Reconciliation and Loving Kindness. Please read more here.
