The Mindfulness Grad Online Community (MGOC) will gather monthly under the guidance of MBSR Teacher and Teacher Trainer Rebecca Eldridge, for continued learning, practice, and community.

During each session, we will explore various mindfulness topics through teachings, practice, silent reflection, and speaking & listening.

As members of the MGOC, we all will—

  • Participate. Your presence and participation matters. Our live interaction and in-the-moment bonding will provide the buoyancy for good learning, good community, and good care-taking of ourselves and each other. Each session will also be video-recorded and shared with everyone who registers. Each session's recording will be available for review until the next month's session.
  • Speak & listen. We will show up ready to truly wonder; to speak from direct experience about what we know, as well as what we don't know or aren't sure of—and to listen deeply as others do the same.
  • Practice between sessions. We will each maintain a personal practice that fits our life, and consider how formal and informal practices of mindfulness are informing our life.
  • Explore between sessions. We will explore various topics both during and between sessions—through our day-to-day experiences, through contemplation and practice, reading and studying, and more.
  • You graduated from any organization's 8-week Mindfulness-Based course (such as MBSR, MBCT, MSC, and so on) that was held live either in person or online.
  • You want to be part of a community of mindfulness practitioners willing to be seen as human—perfectly imperfect and totally okay.

Engaging a process at each session will provide a structured freedom to move us toward understanding, acceptance, action, further wondering, connection, and other things we can’t possibly name until they arise in our midst.

The process, with approximate times—

  • Landing & welcome: 5 min.
  • Brief check-in from each person: 10 min.
  • Introduction of topic, brief teaching: 15 min.
  • Mindfulness practice: 20 min.
  • Silent reflection on topic: 10 min.
  • Speaking & Listening: Small & Whole Group: 20 min.
  • PAUSE: 5 min.
  • Gathering: What do we know now? 20 min.
  • For next time: 10 min.
  • Closing: 5 min.

NOTE: Everyone (those present and those who registered but have to miss) will receive an email after each session, with 1) a link to the recording of that session, 2) a link to donate, and 3) what to focus on for next time.

September’s Theme: Establishing & Re-establishing Practice

We will begin to get to know each other as this community establishes itself. Our focus will be on—

Practice…

  • Why?
  • What?
  • How?
  • When?
  • Where?
…in service of experiencing all of Who you are.
