pain.  This reactivity often adds more pain than there was originally.  As the story explains, it’s as if our response to being shot by an arrow is to shoot ourselves with another, second arrow.  A wiser course of action is to avoid that second arrow by simply experiencing discomfort without reacting to it.  We do this by being mindful.

Our Two Arrows Workshop will provide participants with a view to undersanding our own unique patterns of emotional reactivity with gentleness and curiosity.  Participants will leave with mindfulnes tools and practices which can build and strengthen equaniminity amidst the challenges of every day life.  

The tuitioin fee covers lunch, refreshments and course materials.

The Story of the Two Arrows and understanding emotional reactivity is an integral part of the 8-Week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction curriculum.  The 8-Week MBSR training program will be offered at Palm Beach Shambhala beginning Tuesday, September 26th.
