Stephanie Nash 3-Day Mindfulness Workshop Amsterdam
Friday, 1 May 2015 at 10:00 - Sunday, 3 May 2015 at 17:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join US-based meditation teacher Stephanie Nash (longtime student of and co-teacher with acclaimed teacher Shinzen Young) for three days of depth - combining sitting, movement, talks, and laughter - all in a spirit of depth, ease, and fun. Stephanie always likes to emphasize practical use of mindfulness in one's daily life to create more presence and well-being.
This is the first time Stephanie has made a public workshop like this available in Europe after much demand and spaces are limited. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
"Stephanie Nash has mastered the art of Mindfulness Coaching. She has a deep understanding and vast experience in this field. In addition to that, Stephanie has worked very closely with me in developing a distinctive form of mindfulness practice that is gaining increasing usage in clinical and educational settings. Since 1998, Stephanie has not only assisted & collaborated with me, but has developed techniques on her own that work effectively with a variety of sensory experience. I now use a way she created of working with my “Restful States” as the introductory meditation at all of my retreats. .... Stephanie students continue to express appreciation at her clarity, humor & skill."

When & Where
Stephanie Nash is an American mindfulness coach and integrative counselor who has worked closely and extensively with Shinzen Young, acclaimed American master mindfulness teacher, contributing to the development of his innovative & effective mindfulness techniques which are now being studied by Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Psychology, Yale and other prestigious educational and research institutions. Stephanie participated in Part I of the Harvard brain study (spending 3 hours in an fMRI) and will be teaching the mindfulness techniques to participants in the 2nd phase of the study.
While Stephanie is an expert on all of Shinzen's techniques, she has developed her own effective strategies with Mindful Pleasure, Mindful Body Language, Conscious Eating, and her Laugh For Inner Fitness meditations are quite popular. Steph's "10 Minute Chill" (which she created from Shinzen's "Rest States") has become a mainstay at Shinzen's retreats and elsewhere - as it has proven to be a most effective way to find a resting place for body and mind quickly and easily.
Stephanie was recently a featured expert on the Deepak Chopra show, as well as the Buddhist Geeks Interview Series (first for a podcast "Tuning into the Truth of the Moment" https://www.buddhistgeeks.com/author/stephanie-nash/ - and then for a live webcast interview on "Practice and Life" which is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLGtVvAsMjQ&list=PLF5BD30938C36F8E5)
Based in California, Stephanie's "Mindful Body Language" workshops (taught at UCLArts & Healing & elsewhere) delve into how our body positions and movement can affect how we think and feel- as well as how we communicate with and open to our environment.
Stephanie has been a professional actress for 35 years and an acting teacher for 25 (and is also an Associate Professor Adjunct at the Art Center College of Design where she trains graduate film directors to work with actors) and it is her work with helping actors create the suffering that others want freedom from that has given her a unique perspective to this process of identifying and developing effective strategies for eliminating suffering.
Stephanie's "Mindful Pleasure" workshops involve tuning into pleasant experience which is always present but often not noticed - as well as with cultivating pleasant options in each moment. This work also includes detecting and releasing the subtle grasping often present within the pleasant experience - leading to a more fulfilling experience.
Stephanie has done extensive work with "Mindful Eating" - or "Conscious Eating", as she now likes to call it (since we are all aware of what UNconscious eating is.) For several years, Steph taught many 6-8 week workshops (and also co-led a weekly support group) that focused on our relationship with food and eating. Stephanie has repeatedly been interviewed on radio in Los Angeles about this topic and has also done presentations for several health organizations.
And last but not least, Stephanie developed her "Laugh for Inner Fitness" meditations as an effective way to create intensely positive energy instantly - and also as a way to quickly dislodge "stuck" unhelpful thoughts & feelings while creating an openness and enthusiasm for just being in the present moment.
