Program Details

For everyone; no meditation experience required.

Do you have trouble getting out of your own way? Do you want more freedom from self-imposed rules, expectations, and limitations? Mindfulness has the power to release you from regret, perfectionism, and other forces that give rise to dissatisfaction and anguish.

This workshop combines training in mindfulness meditation and the Buddha’s psychology with a creative narrative process called Story Art, to free you from self-inflicted obstacles. In this program, you

  • Learn basic mindfulness skills
  • Get unstuck from your harsh internal critic and develop self-compassion, acceptance, and equanimity
  • Let go of restlessness, impatience, boredom, and distractibility
  • Practice Story Art to deal with unsettled issues.

This life-changing week engages you through mindful self-exploration, humor, poetry, heartfelt discussion, and a creative method for disarming painful and limiting stories.
