Carolina is a very well known psychiatrist in Sacramento area. She is a good friend of mine since we were 6 years old. When I finish teacher training at the yoga farm she came and visited me. Years after she recommended me to take MBSR to have the tools to work with psychiatric pacientes as she recognizes this method to be very beneficial for people with serious mental illnesses.
Here I am taking MBSR with my husband Paul at UCSD. 8 weeks of inner tour!
We started last Thursday and in the group we have 28 more people plus the facilitators Allan and Melanie. In the introduction we were asked to say our names and something special about it. Then we were induced with an exercise to discover our purpose or intention to take the training. We were asked to put the intentions aside and be there with the "exploration" mind set.
I am very pleased to take this training, since I don't like medications and I believe people can heal their selves and their lives if they are able to be the best friends of their minds, being mindful, nos judgmental and open to let go.
