Weare delighted to announce our next 5-Day Silent Mindfulness Retreat, to be held in the serene and comfortable setting at the Duncan Conference Center in Delray Beach, Florida. This retreat honors the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) principles developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. Developing essential mindfulness skills through teacher-led silent mindfulness retreats is important. This retreat is not only open to mindfulness practitioners to enhance their already established mindful meditation practice, but to MBSR Teachers-in-Training.
this retreat will be co-led by Valerie York Zimmerman, founder of Miami Mindfulness, and Sharon Theroux, founder of the South Florida Center for Mindfulness. Both are certified to teach MBSR by the Oasis Institute at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
