You are hearing the word everywhere... seeing it everywhere... but what is Mindfulness really about? What does the practice of mindfulness look like? And feel like? How could it benefit my personal life? My professional life? What would it mean to be more present to whole of my life... the good, the difficult and everything in between?
Please join us for a two hour introduction to the practice of Mindfulness with Dr. Jennifer Egert. In this workshop, together we will practice several forms of Mindfulness meditation, discuss our experience and explore the value in continued practice. Education will be provided about MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), an 8-week, well researched course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Mass.
Jennifer Egert, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City offering mindfulness based psychotherapy and workshops in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindful approaches to stress management. She began her own personal study and mindfulness practice in 2002, exploring the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, G.I. Gurdjieff, Thich Nhat Hanh and others. Dr. Egert has trained in both MBCT and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as well with other mindfulness-based psychotherapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion focused interventions.
