Mindfulness Courses for Adults

Mindful

Self-Compassion

(MSC)

MSC is an 8-week training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion.  Based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer, MSC teaches core principales and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity and balanced mindful awareness. Together they comprise a state of warm-hearted, connected presence.  

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

(MBSR)

This 8-week course is one of the most widely-researched and established mindfulness courses taught around the world. This course is highly recommended to people who are committed to building a solid mindfulness practice and cultivating skills that can be applied to everyday situations. It takes this kind of repetition over time to form new patterns of thinking and habits. Participants learn skills to cultivate present focused attention as well as a friendly kind attitude towards experiences. Through practices one discovers and observes how they react to life’s difficulties and learns that they can choose to respond with more clarity and wisdom. 

.b Foundations

This is an 8-week training designed for adults working in educational settings.  It helps them to gain first hand understanding of mindfulness as a skill that can be cultivated and incorporated into daily life.

The course is based on core mindfulness principles of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and this can be the first step towards satisfying pre-requisites for being eligible to attend the .b teacher training course to teach mindfulness to teenagers as well as the paws.b teacher training course to teach mindfulness to children ages 7-11.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Siri is a wonderful guide! I took 3 Mindfulness courses with her in the course of 2 years. I learned so much in every class and she inspired me to continue practicing on my own. Siri's lessons were always peaceful and one could immediately feel a sense of community and trust that invited all the participants to open up and to be fully engaged in the moment.
