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 in Barre, MA. I had been a pretty miserable person, caught up in emotional reactivity, rumination, and depression, sabotaging myself in various ways. I learned so much about myself at the retreat and after I got home, I found myself dropping a lot of reactivity and rumination and began to be able to respond to difficulties with more compassion for myself and for others.

 

I have practiced mindfulness ever since and continued attending retreats whenever I could. I am not enlightened (!), but am happier and better able to respond wisely to life's difficulties and joys.

   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 winter we're offering two Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Classes: one on Monday evenings and the other on Saturday afternoons. Classes start with a free Introductory session Jan. 11 and Jan. 16.  

This winter, I will 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.

Practicing mindfulness appears to be helpful in coping with depression, anxiety, pain, and 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.
