**MBSR Practice Weeks on Crete (Greece) **
11 days: 1 - 11 July or 1 - 11 September 2018
8 days: 1 - 8 July or 1 - 8 September 2018
MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) is a simple yet highly effective way to deal more effectively with stress, illness, and the demands of daily life, and to improve physical and emotional well-being. The program consists of practical exercises: body awareness (BodyScan), mindful yoga, sitting and walking meditation, and mindfulness in everyday life. The course focuses on personal practice and experience. No prior experience is necessary.
This 11-day or 8-day MBSR teacher-led retreat gives participants a special opportunity to devote real time to themselves, a different kind of vacation for relaxation and regeneration. It is particularly conceived for those who are not able to attend a regular 8-week course, as well as for those who already have MBSR experience and would like to refresh and deepen their personal MBSR practice.
We begin each day with standing yoga practice on the beach. After breakfast, we continue in our seminar room practicing the bodyscan, yoga, sitting and walking meditation. In the afternoon there’s plenty of time and space for individual (mindfulness in daily life) practice while eating, shopping, conversing, actively non-doing under a beach umbrella, swimming, walking on the beach, enjoying freshly squeezed orange juice or a Greek coffee at one of the tavernas, etc. In the early evening additional practice and discussion sessions are offered, with practical information about mindfulness and stress reduction.
At the end of this retreat, you can extend your stay and continue practicing what you’ve learned under guidance.
