Mindfulness is a skill and requires ongoing dedication and practice. If you have taken an 8 week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course in the past and noticed that your practice has begun to slip and/or that you have hit a plateau in your practice and would like the deepen the skills you learned throughout MBSR, than this graduated course is for you!

Similar to the structure of MBSR, this graduated course is designed to deepen the skills that come out of exploring one's own internal state and the experiences of the other participants, through various meditative and contemplative activities, in and out of each session.

Participants are encouraged to maintain a daily meditation and mindful movement practice, as well as explore various mindfulness-based activities through-out the course, which includes a weekly 'check in' with a fellow participants and teacher.

The course has 6 sessions in total.
