Mindfulness is the art and science of paying attention, of listening to ourselves and the world around us, of learning “to be Intimate with all things”.

This practice-oriented 6-week series is an in-depth experiential training in Mindfulness Meditation. The series is based on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as taught by John Kabat-Zinn. It consists of 6 weekly sessions (2 hours) plus a day-long meditation retreat (10am-4pm).

Brent Morton will offer an array of practices including:

  • Nervous system regulation
  • Self soothing techniques
  • Mindful ways to work with difficult emotions and trauma 
  • Establishing a daily mindfulness routine 
  • Calming the inner critic
  • Self compassion 
  • Mindful movement 
  • Mindful eating 
  • The neuroscience of meditation
No experience in meditation is necessary. Beginners and advanced practitioners are welcome to come and explore their minds.

 Why take this course?

Learning and keeping up a meditation practice can be challenging, and it is easy to get side tracked, confused, and frustrated. It is much easier and more fun to meditate when you have the guidance to do it properly, and a group to support you on your journey.

Testimonials from Alumni:

-“I meet life with more wakefulness and courage.”

-“I feel more alive.”

-“I’m nicer and more forgiving to myself.”

-“I get into the “flow” much easier at work. My productivity has gone way up, and my procrastination way down.”

-“I feel more connected to my loved ones and the world.”

” I feel like I just know myself more.”

Brent Morton has been practicing yoga and meditation seriously for over 10 years, with 7 years teaching experience. His passion is practicing and teaching Insight meditation (mindfulness), which he has trained in extensively, including over a year spent on silent meditation retreats and 10,000+ hours of meditation practice. One of his main intentions for teaching is to bring mindfulness into yoga and yoga into mindfulness; for yoga practitioners to use the technique of mindfulness to deepen their understanding of their minds, and for mindfulness practitioners to use yoga to deepen their understanding of their bodies. Brent has been trained by Jack Kornfield and Joseph Goldstein to teach meditation through a 4 year teacher training at Spirit Rock Meditation Center.

In addition to being a teacher of mindfulness and yoga Brent is also a bodyworker (Craniosacral Therapy) and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner for healing trauma and nervous system regulation.
