mindfulness based stress reduction

Why mindfulness meditation in your recovery journey?

The mindfulness practices taught in the course are designed to help us pause, observe present experience, and become aware of the “automatic” reactions that seem to control many of our lives.

From this awareness we discover the range of choices before each of us in every moment. We learn to respond in ways that serve us, rather than react in ways that are detrimental to our health and happiness. Ultimately, we are working towards freedom from deeply ingrained and often catastrophic patterns.

This session serves as an introduction to the Mindfulness-based Relapse Prevention (or MBRP) course, a novel treatment approach originally developed at the Addictive Behaviors Research Center at the University of Washington, for individuals in recovery from addictive behaviors.

The practices help us:

1. Develop awareness of personal triggers and habitual reactions, and learn ways to create a pause in this seemingly automatic process.

2. Change our relationship to discomfort, learning to recognize challenging emotional and physical experiences and responding to them in skillful ways.

3. Foster a nonjudgmental, compassionate approach toward ourselves and our experiences.

4. Build a lifestyle that supports both mindfulness practice and recovery.

What to expect in this session?

Tyler will provide instruction in exercises such as the body scan, sitting meditation and walking meditation. There will be time for open discussion.

No prior experience with meditating is expected or required.
