Jon Kabat-Zinn's successful mindfulness programme has roots in several different traditional Buddhist schools. In this four week course, Derek will explain how the practice of mindfulness has been developed over the different phases of Buddhism, highlighting along the way, a number of insights which could be applied in a contemporary secular context.
Week 1. Calm and Insight
Week 2. The Compassionate Imagination
Week 3. The Mind's Inherent luminosity
Week 4. Opening Onto Wholeness
The idea that we are 'already whole,' is a recurrent theme in Kabat-Zinn's work and can be seen as an expression of his own training in Zen. We will look at ways in which we can make this principle more conscious in our lives.
