Program Details

For everyone.

Freedom and self-compassion are the promise of awakening, available whenever you skillfully engage your attention with mindfulness in the present moment. This program 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 a life-changing week of mindful self-exploration, humor, poetry, heartfelt discussion, and a creative method for awakening out of painful and limiting stories, you

  • Learn basic mindfulness skills through formal and informal meditation practices
  • Uncover the hidden rules, expectations, and stories that keep you stuck, frustrated, and unhappy
  • Develop self-acceptance and equanimity to counter your internal critic
  • Practice Story Art to work through unsettled issues
  • Gain direct knowledge of the Buddha’s psychology of awakening.
