From my screen porch . . .
I am grateful that I have been able to garner financial support from my University to explore training in MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) through the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
This training has helped me tremendously in enhancing my teaching and counseling at Ole Miss with mindfulness-based contemplative practices.
This particular training occurred in the summer of 2012 when I attended the 9 – day Practicum at the Omega Institute in New York. My teachers were Florence Meleo-Meyer and Melissa Blacker. Another extraordinary experience on the journey.
