This month-long adventure offers an ingenious way of enhancing mindfulness, solving problems, and revitalizing your life. We will provide you with the tools, structure and support to develop greater mindfulness in your personal and professional life. Each day of the month you will work with your attention in a deliberate, focused, and interesting way.

Food is very near and dear to our hearts, isn’t it? We are often very attached to the foods we love, even if those foods are taking a toll on our health and wellbeing. So let’s join forces and support each other as we develop a more purposeful way of eating. The principles of Japanese Psychology will provide a profoundly helpful framework for this process.
Sept. 11 – Oct. 11, 2020
During this month-long program, we will explore how to coexist with our internal experience, work with our attention, live with purpose, develop acceptance and practice self-reflection. The curriculum of the course spans the practical, the psychological and the spiritual. These dimensions are woven together throughout the course in the same way that they are woven together in our real lives. The program is broad enough to be widely relevant, and deep enough to offer new discoveries, as our lives continue to change and unfold over time.
Oct. 14 – Nov. 13, 2020
The program is taught by Trudy Boyle, program coordinator for the ToDo Institute’s new Living Fully with Illness project.

Nov. 17- Dec. 16, 2020
You are invited to join us for our annual Gratitude, Grace and a Month of Self-Reflection sponsored by the ToDo Institute. This is a distance learning program which gives you an opportunity to integrate the practice of self-reflection into your daily life. The program is based primarily on Naikan and Naikan-related exercises, but also draws on material and ideas of Albert Schweitzer, Ben Franklin, and others whose work emphasized the importance of quiet self-reflection. Many of us believe that it is important to take time for quiet reflection, but we don’t do it because our lives are so busy.
Mon., Oct. 5, 2020
This new program is exclusive for those impacted by a serious illness or health challenge. It is an opportunity to take a fresh look at our lives through the lens of a study group, as opposed to a support group. What does this mean?
