5-Night Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Retreat

June 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - June 17, 2022 @ 1:00 pm


Directed by Mark Dannenfelser, MA, LPC

The 5-night Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) retreat includes meditation instruction, short talks by the teacher(s), guided sessions of mindfulness meditation practice, including sitting meditation, walking meditation, movement exercises and mindful in everyday activities. Participants will keep Noble or Grand Silence throughout the 5 days. There will also be opportunities for individual conferences with the retreat facilitator(s).

The retreat is modeled on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) principles developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli at the Center for Mindfulness in the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

NOTE: Prior experience with a personal meditation practice is highly recommended. If you are new to mindfulness practice or would prefer an introductory program, you may consider the one-day introductory workshop, a weekend retreat, and/or the 8-week MBSR course.

*Medical Disclaimer: The Mindfulness programs are for educational purposes only and are not intended as, nor should they be considered a substitute for, professional medical advice and/or treatment.

Please also let us know if you have mobility issues, as the retreat location involves climbing steps and walking on a gentle slope.
