How the Dharma informs all Mindfulness-based Approaches

This retreat is suitable for anyone wishing to deepen his or her practice and cultivate further understanding of the rationale how the Dharma info mindfulness-based approaches. This will be especially of interest to those teaching or aspiring to teach mindfulness in healthcare, psychology, education, science, government, or in the business and corporate sectors.


In the last 37 years Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and other Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBI) have spread exponentially throughout the world. Mindfulness has become very popular 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 Dharma informs mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and all mindfulness-based interventions (MBI). Through the direct practices of the four foundations of mindfulness you will learn how the essence of these wisdom teachings (Dharma): the four noble truths and the three characteristics of existence intersects and informs all mindfulness-based interventions. This traditional insight meditation retreat will offer silent periods of sitting and walking meditation, mindful yoga as well group and individual teacher interviews. Teachers will also offer daily talks and systematic meditation instructions that are embedded with the spirit of lovingkindness. These teachings and practices will emphasize quieting the mind, opening the heart, and developing clarity and depth of practice.

This retreat will be run by Bob Stahl.
