This is a free 90-minute interactive introduction to the power of Integral Mindfulness. This program is offered at various locations around Louisville - libraries, wellness centers, spiritual organizations, yoga studios, churches, etc. To learn about upcoming programs, visit www.bemindful.org and click on "Integral Mindfulness - Programs and Events."
For those progressive businesses, healthcare and non-profit organizations seeking to integrate mindfulness into their work environment, I offer a variety of Integrally-informed mindfulness training programs. These range from a three-hour introduction combined with a comprehensive self-study package (very cost effective) to an eight-week Integral Mindfulness or MBSR small group class (more likely to show meaningful results). For those seeking to ground their organization in mindfulness and/or Integral Theory, a comprehensive management training program combined with targeted staff trainings can be developed. For more information, visit www.BeMindful.org.
Offered in several formats, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction programs offer comprehensive small-group training in mindfulness meditation, mindful movement and healthy lifestyle practices. Participants learn to stay present to each moment without the usual overlay of judgment or reactivity. By cultivating non-judgmental awareness, skillful response replaces conditioned reactivity, allowing a natural movement toward healthy lifestyle choices and more moments of restorative stillness and peace. All programs offer a powerful approach to coping with physical, psychological and interpersonal stress as well as pain, illness and addiction. Healthy Relationships programs add a focus on using mindfulness to transform our intimate lives.
