Advanced Course 2018 – Home Page

Welcome to the Advanced Green Zone Leader Home page. This will be a place for me to post important information (see below). This page will grow and evolve throughout the course.

At the bottom of this page is the link to the live sessions. The same link should be used for nearly every session, but keep an eye out for email updates in case of changes.

Course Text

A full manuscript of The Mindful Heart can be found here.

The Exercises in the Book: While some exercises will be specifically assigned, other exercises in the book will be optional. Whether you do them will depend on your own availability — whether you only have 5 hours a week to spend, or want more. Please feel free to engage as deeply as you would like, but don’t feel pressured to spend more time than you have. The point is not to make this course a burden, but to allow it to be a (challenging) pleasure.

Course Forums

Click here for the Forums. NOTE: if you want a separate forum during the course to discuss a separate topics with a subgroup of students (i.e. “mindful communication for therapists”), please ask me. It’s very easy to create a new little sub-community. (For tips on using the forums, click here.)
