Julie Chippendale, nurse, yoga instructor and mindfulness teacher, is excited about her upcoming Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course being held at Scripps Encinitas Hospital starting October 26. The program offers a framework for navigating unfamiliar and sometimes difficult life territory with a degree of clarity and equanimity. “Mindfulness is a skill that can be developed through practice, just like any other skill. You could think of it as a muscle,” explains Chippendale. “The muscle of mindfulness grows both stronger and suppler as you use it. And like a muscle, it grows best when working with a certain amount of resistance. “

In 1994, Chippendale met Jon Kabat-Zinn and completed his professional Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction instructor training. She has taught the course for 18 years in Encinitas. “It is clear that there is something about the cultivation of mindfulness that is healing, that is transformative…,” she says. “Life provides us with just the right conditions for developing our innate capacities for knowing our own minds and shaping its ability to stay present. In doing so, we can discover new dimensions of well-being and happiness.”

The course fee is $495 or $800 for a couple. The 8-week course will be held on Monday evenings from 6 to 8:30 p.m. with a Day of Mindfulness from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 18. To register or for more information, call 760-944-7735.
