This workshop will give participants an introduction and overview of what Mindfulness and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) are, it's background and most important research outcomes. We will then use one particular mindfulness class, the Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) class as an example of how mindfulness can foster societal change. There will be an overview of the MBCP curriculum, some research, as well as salient presentations from the class and lot of hands-on practice of formal mindfulness practices as well as practicing with physical pain (in labor and everyday life).
Online registration is open (click Buy Tickets button). In the event the workshop is canceled, participants will be notified by Wednesday, the week of the workshop. Registration fees are refunded only if the workshop is canceled; no refund for partial attendance or no-show.
