Full Catastrophe Living
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction is a program to help people "face stress, pain, and illness by tapping into the wisdom of their body and mind." The program was developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Classes are now taught around the country and have been praised for helping people change their relationship with their bodies and minds, as well as other people, in a positive way through commitment to self-awareness and self-acceptance.
with Alison Jarvis
Alison Jarvis attended an 8-week MBSR class during a time of professional upheaval and clearly benefited from many of the lessons and practices, which now have become incorporated into her everyday life.
Today's service will be a contemplative experience. We will read excerpts from the Kabat-Zinn's book that illustrate the attitudinal factors of mindfulness practice, interspersed periods of brief meditation to allow us to practice and focus on these factors.
