Upcoming Programs


This year the 8-week mindfulness course is being presented in a new format: a series of three workshops. The workshops build on each other, so all three are suggested, but they are also designed so that each one can offer value if taken alone.

 

Mindfulness and Stress Reduction: The Foundations

Sunday, March 10, 2019     1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

This workshop will introduce mindfulness and awareness of the mind-body connection in order to shape more effective responses to stress and difficulty. We will practice some techniques of meditation, as well as awareness of body and breath. These practices can be especially helpful for people suffering from physical or emotional conditions that alter the quality of life, helping them to develop new patterns of responding and co-existing with difficulty. This free program is funded by the Gettysburg Hospital Foundation.

 

Mindfulness and Stress Reduction: Building Skills

Sunday, April 7, 2019        1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

This workshop builds on the skills begun in the Foundations workshop, but can also stand alone for those who have some familiarity with meditation. We will review the foundations briefly and then work on deepening skill in meditation with awareness of the breath. We will explore gentle yoga as a moving meditation. We will also deepen our exploration of mindfulness as a strategy for coping with stress and difficulty, and introduce lovingkindness meditation as a way of shaping our experience. This free program is funded by the Gettysburg Hospital Foundation.

 

Mindfulness and Stress Reduction: Life as Practice

Sunday, May 5, 2019         1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

The final workshop in the mindfulness series will focus on how skills in mindfulness and meditation can play out in our everyday world to improve quality of life. New meditative techniques will include walking meditation, open awareness, and some guided imagery. We will examine how unhelpful patterns in our reactions to stress might be changed with time and practice, and discuss strategies for making practice ongoing. This free program is funded by the Gettysburg Hospital Foundation.
