Following the successful Mindfulness retreat in Prague in May 2018, Happy Heart z.ú. has the honour and privilege to host once more the highly experienced Senior Mindfulness Teacher, Mr.Amir Imani in Czech Republic. On his way from the Himalayas, Amir has kindly accepted our invitation to join us in Prague for another session.

We are pleased to propose his program "Heart-Based Mindfulness Retreat: Revisiting Stress Reduction and Wellbeing..." on June 28th – 30th, 2018.

Home is where the heart is. In the busyness of our lives we tend to pay less and less attention to the call of the heart which is to embrace life as it is with kindness and awareness. This is not easy. In this workshop we will explore ways of revisiting ourselves which have proved to be powerful tools in dealing with stress, pain, and illness.

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) was originated at the University of Massachusetts’s Medical School by Dr. John-Kabat Zinn. Since its beginning, more than 22,000 people have completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program with the University of Massachusetts and learned how to use their innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, and illness.

 It has been taught in USA, Canada, and Europe for more than 40 years in more than 800 centres worldwide to groups as diverse as healthcare professionals and doctors, psychologists, corporate employees, CEOs, educators, attorneys, judges, correctional staff, prison inmates, members of the clergy, Olympic and professional athletes, coaches and other professionals in helping sector. Because MBSR helps people make better judgments in life, courses are now being offered to employees by big companies such as Apple, Google,General Mills, Boeing, and Harvard Business School, among others.

 

THE HEART-BASED MINDFULNESS RETREAT PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO ASSIST PARTICIPANTS TO UTILIZE THEIR INNATE ABILITIES TO LEARN HOW TO:

  • relax and connect to themselves, life, and others
