In October, we had an overwhelming response to “Mindful Movement and Meditation” programs held at the Falmouth Public library. Dr. Kim presented four sessions: one for the library staff members, and three for the residents.
Dr. Kim presented his speech on Science of Resilience and hands on training of MBX-12 for over 100 law enforcement agents from various agencies in New England. Leaders of Team Training Associates and the University of Rhode Island Public Safety Department hosted the event to help field officers enhance skills for leadership and job performance as well as personal well-being.
The Woods Hole Public Library in Woods Hole, Massachusetts presented Dr. Kim’s talk and hands-on practice session of mindful movement on January 13, 2016. He presented his research findings on therapeutic mindfulness training as well as on preventative training for the general public. He also discussed how to practice MBX-12 properly for the maximum benefits of the mindfulness training at the individual level. For details, visit Woods Hole Public Library website.
The 6-week Mindfulness and Meditation Workshop, organized and sponsored by the Foxboro Council on Aging and Human Services in Massachusetts.
Over 120 participants had the opportunity to learn MBX-12 between September 29 and November 4, and many of them seamlessly performed the 12 movement routine with Dr. Kim following the beautiful rhythm of Beethoven’s Sonata No 8 in C minor Op 13 Pathetique Adagio Cantabile.
The 8-week Mindful Movement & Meditation Workshop, organized and sponsored by the Department of Human Services of the Town of Falmouth in Massachusetts, had a great turnout with over 320 residents participated.
The Falmouth Enterprise newspaper introduced MBX12 as a mindful exercise form for “feeling refreshed and invigorated and regaining a sense of oneself“. After 8 weeks, the paper summed up the experience of MBX12 practice as “the participants being experts moving together, eliciting the peacefulness of yoga, the power of martial arts, and the flow of dance, especially when they concluded the evening practicing to the 2nd Movement of the Beethoven Sonata No 8. At points the only sound was their synchronized breathing.” The Falmouth Community Television exclusively featured Dr. Kim and his teaching philosophy.
