Saratoga NY Stress Reduction Graduate Programs

Deepening Your Practice



We will be offering a special three-part workshop for SSRP GRADUATES with the Saratoga Stress Reduction Program instructors:

– 3/11/18 with Dr. Selma Nemer – 
“Coming Home to the Body”
Listening to the body’s intelligence broadcasting, a practicum of sitting-with sensations, feelings and thoughts. Then deepening towards compassionate understanding.

– 3/18/18 with Pierre Zimmerman –
“Dealing Mindfully with Disturbing Emotions”
How can we approach emotions without repressing them? Recognize them, let them move through us and then release them, so they don’t control us or lead us to act in ways that are harmful to ourselves or others? Discover tools to express, respond and relate to emotions in healthy & useful ways, and become aware of their transient nature.

– 3/25/18 with Caroline Russell Smith – “Frontier of Connection”
Remaining in relationship with ourselves in the presence of external challenges and demands.

All sessions meet 1:30-3:00pm at ONE BIG ROOF, 538 Maple Ave.
The program cost is $150 all inclusive for all three dates, and pre-registration is required.
