Stuck in Meditation is the hub of an online community formed for the sole purpose of supporting the mindfulness meditation practice of people who have learned to meditate, whether on their own or through formal training programs like Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) or any one of a number of other "MB-Anythings" that are proliferating like wildfire across the globe.
Steven Hickman, Psy.D. is the Director of the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness and has been teaching meditation, primarily in the form of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for 11 years. He is a clinical psychologist in the UC San Diego Departments of Psychiatry and Family & Preventive Medicine and is a leader in the UC San Diego Center for Integrative Medicine.
After having taught over 75 Mindfulness classes over the years, Steve has had the opportunity to guide skeptical meditators through the process of learning mindfulness and helping relieve their suffering through the practice. He hopes to expand the scope of his teaching and guidance through this blog and your participation in it.
