About Libby

Welcome to my website.  

 

I teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), lead drop-in guided mindfulness meditation sessions, and provide presentations to organizations

and businesses.

 

I have been practicing mindfulness since 1979 when I went to my first 7-day silent retreat at the Insight Meditation Society. I have practiced mindfulness ever since and continue to attend retreats whenever I can.

In 2001, I was offered the opportunity to take a week-long course on teaching MBSR from Jon Kabat-Zinn, who developed this model of learning mindfulness. Since then, I have pursued further advanced teacher training. 

I started teaching in 2003 to patients and colleagues in the UM Psychiatry Department. In 2010, I offered the course to the broader community, teaching MBSR almost every Fall, Winter, and Spring to a wide variety of individuals.

Teaching mindfulness is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I learn so much from every class. Teaching reinforces my own practice, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge of cultivating gentle compassionate awareness of the present moment.

   What is Mindfulness? 

"Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally in the service of self-understanding and wisdom."

Jon Kabat-Zinn

This coming Spring we're offering two Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Classes: one on Saturday afternoons and the other on Monday evenings. Classes start with a free Introductory session March 27 and 29.   

This spring I will again be teaching two online sessions of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) with Pam Schweitzer. MBSR is an 8-week mindfulness training class developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1970's, which has been the basis for much of the research on the impact of cultivating mindfulness. Jon's work kicked off the mindfulness phenomena. 

Practicing mindfulness appears to be helpful in coping with depression, anxiety, pain, stress, and other difficult aspects of life. I have been teaching MBSR since 2007 and have taught over 30 MBSR classes. Pam is a clinical nurse specialist with experience teaching mindfulness to outpatients with anxiety.

 

Both classes begin with a free introductory class on Saturday, March 27 or Monday, March 29. If you're interested in learning more about mindfulness and the 8-week class, contact Libby for the Zoom link for the Introductory session.
