We will practice formally with guided instruction during class time and between class meetings. Class discussion, dialogue and informal practice experiments will focus on attitudes and actions that support awareness in your life. The class meets for 90 minutes over four weeks. This course is designed for graduates of the 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, 4-week Intro to Mindfulness course, and Allison’s private session students that have completed their individual program.

During this refresher you will— • Commit to daily practice with the support and inspiration of fellow practitioners • Revisit and engage in foundational mindfulness practices: sitting, breathing, moving, walking, body scanning, speaking and listening • Reflect and inquire about your life in practice, as it is right now • Share your experience and wonderings with others, in small and large groups • Learn how to deepen the habit of a regular meditation practice
