MBSR: All-Day Retreat

by mandy lipka

What an exciting day! Luckily, I found a spot near some familiar faces in a sea of about nearly 200 strangers.

The agenda was as follows:

  • Opening meditation (8-15 min)
  • Standing yoga
  • Full body scan
  • Walking meditation
  • Sitting meditation
  • Walking meditation
  • Image meditation (mountain)
  • Reflecting meditation (perfect biscuits)
  • Lunch (1 hr)
  • Walking meditation (more random/faster pace/ended with big clump in center of room)
  • Loving kindness meditation (To: you, benefactor, loved one, neutral person, difficult person, the room, all beings)
  • Attention to detail and big picture (hand to room to outside)
  • Peer-to-peer discussion
  • Group discussion
  • Silent meditation
  • Full circle – end with one word
