Gaining Respite from the Mind: Free Registration Here

Like using medicine to alleviate pain, we can use mindfulness and insight meditation to alleviate suffering. Join us this Saturday afternoon for a brief look at this, followed by a short guided session and the opportunity to ask any questions.

This is an online event; please register to receive the Zoom link.

“Gaining Respite from the Mind” is presented by Ron Levine from Mindfulness in Blue Jeans; Ron is a 20+ year practitioner of mindfulness and insight meditation.

After actively denying his own trauma for eight years, Ron’s life finally fell apart in a crippling heap of anxiety, depression, panic disorder, and agoraphobia in early 1998. While on short-term disability and unable to even leave his house, he was introduced to anapanasati (mindfulness of breathing) and vipassana (mindfulness-based insight meditation), which formed the basis of a profound recovery built on daily practice on and off the cushion.

With backgrounds in social psychology, information technology, and yoga, Ron emphasizes a grounded and methodical results-based approach toward discovering inner freedom. Along with his private practice and corporate events, he hosts ongoing workshops and practice groups in the Boston area.

“Mindfulness in Blue Jeans … because enlightenment doesn’t care if you’re wearing yoga pants.”
