And last but not least, the Mountain Meditation. I mistakenly deleted the one I led in the class, but have re-recorded it:
For those interested in leading the Mountain Meditation, here is the script I used; you’ll note that I ad libbed a certain portion of it: mountain meditation
Many wanted contact information for our instructors. Dr. Jenna Tedesco has a wonderful website, rich with information. Here is the link: http://www.presentcenter.net/ You’ll find Jenna’s contact information on that website. Stay tuned to it for information for MBSR and other programs that Jenna plans on offering, as well as links to other websites and MBSR programs offered by other providers.
Dr. Steve DiJulio can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can be reached via email at email@example.com
For extended mindfulness training you can contact either myself or Dr. Tedesco for guidance. In the meantime, we would both strongly recommend getting additional training either through the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness (http://www.umassmed.edu/cfm/index.aspx) or Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia (http://www.jeffersonhospital.org/departments-and-services/mindfulness).
Dr. DiJulio gave out a sheet with Gestalt References. In case you would like the original file, here it is: Gestalt Therapy References If you’re interested in getting more Gestalt training, Steve recommends the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Philadelphia (http://www.gestaltphila.org). If you would like to talk to someone at the Institute Steve recommends you call either Mary Lou Shack (610-207-9930) or David S. Henrich (215-233-3994 x21).
Also, one of my colleagues, Cara Palmer, LCSW, will be offering an MBSR program beginning in September. If you are interested you can download her brochure by clicking on this link: MBSR Tri-fold Brochure Fall 2013 Blue

Ken Williams, one of the attendees of the workshop, found this NIH website with great research articles about Mindfulness: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/?term=mindfulness+based+stress+reduction Enjoy!
There’s still more information to add, which will get done over the next few days. To those who attended this workshop, thanks for being such great and eager learners. And to anyone else reading this post, I hope you find the information in this post and others useful.
