Intensives

MEDITATION x ATTACHMENT
(FORMERLY THE MEANINGFUL LIFE)

Relational mindfulness for love and work.

 
 

LEVEL ONE

Next session TBA

Level One looks at using your meditation practice to come into radical acceptance of yourself as you are now without wanting to change anything. The course explores attachment theory and offers meditation instruction for all levels. Using John Bowlby’s teachings as a model for understanding how we connect with other people, you will learn how we can be completely ourselves in our relationships with others and with our work. In other words, how to live a meaningful life.

 

 

LEVEL TWO

Next session begins January 17, 2019!

Level Two is open to students who have completed Level One well as students have taken any previous iterations of our intensive courses or extended retreats. The course includes one-on-one mentoring and offers a more in-depth exploration of the connections between attachment and regular meditation practice to shift your existing relationships into secure functioning ones. It also incorporates Dr. Daniel P. Brown’s Idealized Parent Figure (IPF) protocol. Please note: the next session will be virtual only via a live, interactive video webcast.

 

 

LEVEL THREE

NEXT SESSION TBA

Level Three is organized around the Idealized Parent Figure (IPF) protocol and is for those who wish to do the deep work that shifts automatic attachment responses into secure functioning ones.  For students who have completed Level Two, this course is the next step that includes an Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) and twice per month IPF sessions. For those who are already engaged in the IPF process, it functions as an engaged support community.

NEXT SESSION TBA


MEDITATION x ADDICTION

Meditation based healing for substance and process-related addictions.

 
 

The techniques and strategies covered in Meditation x Addiction (formerly Meditation Interventions for the Addiction Process) are specifically designed to support healing for people dealing with addiction and addiction-related issues. As evidenced by George Haas's own personal path, mindfulness meditation-based skills training can offer a truly effective behavioral change in the realm of addiction. Offered as a 12-week, 36-class intensive outpatient course in partnership with other acute rehab programs, this course combines traditional meditation approaches, the relapse pattern theories from the work of G. Alan Marlatt, Phd., and John Bowlby’s Attachment Theory. Students learn a simple, easy-to-learn, and very pragmatic approach to addressing addiction, and many move on to The Meaningful Life after stabilizing in their recovery to continue to deepen their practice and maintain healthy lifestyle choices.
