MBSR Winter 2020 Live Online Course
About This Event
Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life. It is a way of taking charge of your life, a way of doing something for yourself that no one else can do for you – consciously and systematically working with your own stress, pain, illness, and the challenges and demands of everyday life. Restoring within yourself a balanced sense of well-being requires increased awareness of all aspects of self, including body and mind, heart and soul. Mindfulness-based stress reduction is intended to ignite this inner capacity and infuse your life with awareness.

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Kate is everything you would want in a mindfulness/yoga teacher. Her years of training and experience shine through, as well as her heartfelt approach. You will not regret any class or retreat you take with Kate!

I've been on retreat twice now with Kate as the leader, coordinator, and Mindfullness Instructor. Both locations thoughtfully selected - serene, beautiful - with good optional excursions providing a full, balanced experience. Food good, healthy, plentiful! The groups are 20 or less folks, mostly women but men too. Kate has years of experience as health care provider, yoga and mindfulness instructor and is attune to the needs of the group so can adjust as necessary. Likes to laugh (even at herself), has good sense of humor, and goes with what the universe presents! I often return in my mind to our retreats, and use the lessons in my daily life. Another bonus is her yoga colleague providing anatomy, balls, and philosophy for all levels of practitioners. Everything is provided lightly, with good humor and gratitude for the shared experience. Memorable!!!

I have both co-taught with, and been a student of, Kate Mitcheom. I loved doing both. She brings all the wisdom, savvy, humor, integrity, energy, enthusiasm, and open-heartedness that allowed her to steadfastly bring both mindfulness and excellent prenatal care to inner city teen girls for many years, to her mindfulness classes and retreats. She makes me laugh, she makes me think, she inspires me. I love spending time with her, and learning from her, and I bet you will, too.
