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 and am now a Certified MBSR Teacher. 

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 July, I will be teaching a 4-week basic mindfulness course with Anne Asker, called Mindfulness Skills for Difficult Times. We'll be meeting every Saturday in July from 1 to 3 pm, starting on July 10th. The class will be virtual (on Zoom). 

Practicing mindfulness appears to be helpful in coping with depression, anxiety, pain, stress, and other difficult aspects of life. I have been teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction since 2007 and have taught over 30 MBSR classes. Anne has been practicing mindfulness for many years and is a qualified MBSR teacher.
