Day of Mindfulness
with Jerry Silbert, M.D.
Join us for a day of mindfulness, a practice to reduce stress and to live fully, as poet Mary Oliver reminds us, “your one wild and precious life.” We will practice clarity of mind, focus, and the non-judgmental observation of experience as it unfolds from moment-to-moment. In a safe, relaxed atmosphere, a variety of mindfulness practices and meditation will be introduced and guided. Silence will be observed for much of the day.
No experience necessary. This retreat is open to anyone who would like to experience the practice and benefits of mindfulness. Wear comfortable slacks and loose fitting clothing.
Jerry Silbert is a physician who has been teaching mindfulness at Mercy by the Sea for over 20 years. He is the executive director of the environmental and health organization The Watershed Partnership a Connecticut non-profit that works to promote safe, healthy, livable communities for present and future generations.
