Course Description

The current state of the world calls for mindful action. We need to live with an open heart, a clear mind, and rooted in integrity. The mindfulness traditions offer a training path to develop those qualities of the mind and heart. With this inner compass, we orient ourselves towards the well-being of all.

In monthly meetings, we will strengthen our qualities of mind and heart and learn how to weave them into our daily lives. These ten qualities of mind and heart are: generosity, virtue, renunciation, wisdom, energy, patience, truthfulness, resoluteness, loving-kindness, and equanimity. Each session will focus on one quality. We will investigate underlying, unrecognized motivations, emotions, and thoughts and dig into deep rooted, often unconscious habits and reactions. We will explore our mind and heart both in our daily practice and in our lives. Transforming old self-centered habits into new open-hearted ones is now possible.

Each session consists of guided mindfulness meditation, sharing of experience, instructions on working with a new quality.

Barbara Pamment has been practicing in various Buddhist traditions for over 30 years. Katrin Micklitz has been a practitioner in the Insight Meditation tradition. Both are experienced mindfulness teachers trained by the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre, UK.

This course is based on Gail Starks book Creating a Life of Integrity: In Conversation with Joseph Goldstein.

Course Description

Many people graduating an 8-week Mindfulness program would like to continue what they have started with guidance and support.
This 12 week course developed by the Oxford Mindfulness Centre introduces a new curriculum that is intended for graduates of 8-week programs to:

o Reinforce and deepen their mindfulness meditation practice
o Deepen and broaden the learning of the key themes from the 8-week curriculum
o The explicit cultivation of the attitudes of mindfulness, in both formal and informal practice o The development of the positive valence system to support well-being and flourishing
o Support participants in applying all that is learned in their lives, in ways that are consonant with their values
o Provide a shared community of practice

The program comprises twelve themes. Examples of the themes are: attention!; inhabiting our bodies; appreciating the life you have; how can I best take care of myself and others?; cool head, warm heart: the art of balance and equanimity and; being the change you'd like to see in the world.
We will explore these themes in guided meditations, individual reflections, and dialogues (dyads to full group settings) – and of course in everyday practice and integration.

Max group size for this course: 16 course participants

Entry Requirements / Who is the course for?
