Breathworks training – mindfulness meditation for pain management
Posted Dec 03 2009 1:00pm
The world is a small place really, as I’ve found out via Twitter, Facebook and the blog – but I didn’t expect to have contact through Amazon (that wicked place that snatches $$ right out of my purse by tempting me with far too many wonderful books!). However, I received an email today from Vidyamala Burch, who has developed Breathworks, a mindfulness meditation approach to pain management that has achieved some success. I have used the Breathworks CD’s for some years now, both for myself and with people who have chronic pain. They’re lovely and nondirective, ‘mindful’ and as a result help me move towards acceptance rather than trying to avoid negative experience.
Anyway, Vidyamala contacted me to say she’s coming to New Zealand (back home!) to lead a training at Mana Retreat over the first week of February.
