Nearing the end of the program, participants are asked to reflect on how they will sustain their mindfulness practice going forward. This underscores the self-regulatory aspect of mindfulness, as one learns how to “become one’s own meditation instructor.” This chapter also contains information regarding the daylong retreat. Participants are given guidance on how to prepare for this silent day of group mindfulness practice, and time is spent in session addressing any questions or concerns about the retreat. The prior week’s experience tracking reacting versus responding in relationships is discussed, and the final new practice of Loving-Kindness is introduced as a way to cultivate compassion for ourselves and ultimately for others.
