From my screen porch . . .
In the summer of 2013, I completed the 7 – Day MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) Retreat at the Omega Institute as part of my continuing training through the Oasis Institute at the Center for Mindfulness. I remain deeply thankful that my University supported this training. The teachers for this retreat were Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli, the founders of the Stress Reduction Clinic at UMass. Wow! Such an amazing experience to study under these masters, to retreat with fellow practitioners from all parts of the globe and hear about the many ways that professionals are integrating mindfulness practices into their work and daily lives.
