A Course in Mindful Living

The X Factor for Resiliency and Sustainable Happiness

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Momentary feelings of peace and connection are blissful, but what’s the key to sustaining positive brain change? According to Dr. Elisha Goldstein, success is in the “X Factor”—a particular combination of experiential integration and peer/mentor support powerful enough to transform mindfulness from a concept, or fleeting experience, into an actual way of life.

Join Elisha Goldstein, PhD, psychotherapist and cofounder of the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, for a weekend immersion into mindful living. Through a combination of conversation, experiential practice, and play, you will learn:

  • How to seamlessly integrate mindful-living practices in your life and relationships.
  • The science and essential practices of mindfulness and self-compassion
  • Foundational techniques for soothing the body and calming the frenetic mind
  • Creative exercises and activities to enhance the learning experience, benefit the brain, and keep you motivated

Though not a prerequisite, this program provides an opportunity to deep dive into the mindful-living practices that Elisha Goldstein teaches in his six-month mentorship program, A Course in Mindful Living. Regardless of previous experience, this weekend will show you how to take your mindfulness practice off the cushion and into your daily life.
