WHAT YOU NEED TO BE READY
You need to be ready to be with your own present experience. Your reactions to the exercises, some of which are done in mindfulness, need to be studied and reported to your small group partners. You need to be comfortable learning in this way, with your whole body, mind and spirit. You need to be able to stay focused on experience and you need to be ready to go into a calm, inward focused, accepting state, to let things happen that you might normally contain or avoid. You have to be willing to experience some painful emotions. These are your challenges.
There is almost no homework, although it is highly recommended that you read about the work and practice what you’ve learned, either with your fellow students or with people not in the training. The more you practice, the better.
