Weekend Workshop in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction – MBSR
with Dr. Eddie Berinstein – May 5-7, 2017
MBSR was started by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the late 1970’s and has since benefited thousands of people worldwide. The cultivation of Mindfulness through Meditation Practice allows us to be more present for our moments as they unfold and to embrace the “full catastrophe” of our life in a more harmonious and balanced way. The primary purpose of the workshop is the cultivation of mindfulness into everyday life, thereby using it as a means and a tool to help deal with chronic pain, stress, and illness. The workshop will consist of both formal and informal mindfulness practices including sitting, walking, loving kindness, and bodyscan meditation. There will be group dialogue and interaction as well as some guided body movement.
Dr. Eddie Berinstein has been practicing Mindfulness and Insight Meditation since 1977 under the guidance of his teacher Anagarika Dhammadinna, until her death in 1991. He has attended many Meditation Retreats and has led a Sunday evening meditation group with the Community Schools for many years.
More recently he has attended “Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction-Professional Training” workshops with Jon Kabat-Zinn. Eddie is now teaching MBSR Workshops on the Sunshine Coast and is presently an Instructor with the Center for Mindfulness. He has found that the cultivation of Mindfulness has enhanced all aspects of his physical, emotional and spiritual life, as well as his professional life as a Family Physician.
