EVENTS AND PROGRAMS
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course offered to the community at Holy Family Retreat Center in Farmington:
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course, founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979. The eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course teaches individuals how to access their innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, an illness. The central focus of the Course is intensive training in mindfulness meditation and its integration into the challenges/adventures of everyday life.

When each of us learns to appreciate the critical
importance of ethics and makes inner values like
compassion and patience an integral part of our basic
outlook on life, the effects will be far-reaching. At the
level of the individual, doing so will help bring about
greater happiness and provide a real sense of purpose
and meaning in our lives. And at the level of society, as
more and more of us do the same, there is a real chance
that we will move decisively in the direction of a culture
that is less materially focused and instead pays closer
attention to our inner, spiritual resources. The benefits of
doing so will be shared by all.
