Working With Pain In Meditation and in Daily Life wih Ines Freedman

Tuesdays, January 12, 19 and 26, 2010, 7:30 to 9pm

A 3-week series

Pain can color every aspect of our lives, but our relationship with pain can be retrained.  We will explore different methods of working with the physical, emotional, and cognitive aspects of physical pain both in meditation practice and in daily life.  The core principles of mindfulness training can be adapted to a practical process that can be effectively used for both intense and chronic pain.
