“May this MBAR program proves to be just the door you need to open, and if so, then enter, enter, enter, and give yourself over day by day, thought by thought, moment by moment to this reliable and profound form of nurturance and healing.”
FOUNDER OF MBSR
Do I have to identify as an addict to participate in this course?
No. The course is for beginners or experienced meditation practitioners, people with an understanding of mindfulness, those who are struggling with addiction and/or addictive behaviors, and health care providers working in the field of addiction.
What would the live session look like and what happens if I am unable to join?
Every week we will have two and a half-hour live sessions with the facilitator. These sessions aim for exchanging experiences with exercises, meditations, weekly topics, and they will provide a safe space for individual shares and asking questions. If you are unable to join the live session, you will be able to watch the recording the very next day, and you will receive all the materials.
What is the language used at the course?
How much time do I need to dedicate to home practice weekly?
It is often difficult for people to carve out time in their already busy lives to attend all 8 classes and do the home-practice. The practices are not a quick fix. Like any tool they can only benefit if you practice using them. We recommend that you practice between 40 and 60 minutes daily in order to gain the most benefit. You can also schedule a one-on-one session with the facilitator if needed.
Can I request an individual session with the facilitator?
Yes, if you feel the need to have an individual session, the facilitator will schedule it for you for an additional charge.
Is there a discount for the course?
Yes. If more people decide to join (family members, partners, friends, coworkers), there is a discount for the course. Please contact us directly regarding this.
What are the payment options?
Payments are done via PayPal. You can pay the whole amount at once or in three separate installments. First installment before the start of the course (when you register), second in the first week of the course, and the third in the fourth week. Please, contact us in case you need payment options.
