De intenties van de 29-juni-2020 workshop in Saki Santorelli's eigen woorden:

"Gesture of Intimacy:

Exploring the Foundational Dimensions of MBSR"

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is an invitation to become intimate with our existence in all its variability and dimensionality. Derived from the Latin: intima, intimacy is “what is deepest and inner most.”

This full day workshop will revolve around the intimacy of mindfulness practice and, by extension – MBSR. Together, we will experientially explore seven foundational dimensions of MBSR and other authentic mindfulness-based programs. Each of these dimensions springs from the heart. Gestures of the awakened heart, together they create a dynamic holding environment for healing that is the hallmark of MBSR.

If our intention is to relieve suffering and to be of use to humanity, embodying this intention requires us becoming increasingly intimate with the joys and sorrows of life – to know how they live and express themselves within us and in our relationships with others. As students and teachers of MBPs, the workshop will offer you an opportunity to: 1) practice mindfulness as it unfolds within the context of MBSR, 2) investigate and become increasingly intimate with the realm of heart and its essential place within the MBP classroom, 3) cultivate warmth, stability and love when facing difficult times in your own life and in the lives of those with whom you work, and 4) begin to recognize and trust the fierceness and wisdom of the insight of the heart.

In the good company of one another, we’ll practice mindfulness in all its forms, engage in an ongoing conversation through structured and spontaneous forms of dialogue, drink in great poetry, and, maybe, allow ourselves to be moved and shaken, drenched and opened into living more fully in the midst of stress, change, and uncertainty.

It is our suffering, our broken heart, that gives us

insight into the suffering of others. Not pity but sharing

in the suffering ourselves because we, too, have known

sorrow and loss. The extraordinary thing is that the insight

of the heart is the magic that unleashes talents and

potentialities within people that have been blocked as a result of their suffering.

- Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

(1) The beauty we love: MBSR teacher education going forward (>> lees verder)

gepubl. in: Current Opinion in Psychology 2019, 28:257–261

Het artikel eindigt met "The most powerful force in the universe is love. Love begets harmony. Harmony begets beauty. There is such beauty in the world. To be touched by it, we have to see and feel beauty. We have to begin to know it intimately and then give it away. Then, bowing deeply to the source of beauty, everything will begin to reveal its beauty to you. Then, you’ll begin to know the beauty of all the people you’ll ever serve in your MBSR courses, and see through them a glimpse of your beauty. Then, quietly, without fanfare, the ‘beauty you love will be what you do.’"

(2) Building an ark: creating a vessel for the education of MBSR teachers (>> lees verder)

gepubl. in: Current Opinion in Psychology 2019, 28:252–256

De laatste alinea kijkt vooruit naar de toekomst van trainer opleidingen, "MBSR teacher education is serving a vital need for people in a world too busy, too distracted, and too disconnected for its own wellbeing. No doubt, MBSR as a form will have its time and, one day, will transform into something else. ....
