An 8 week immersion into mindfulness & compassion for self & others.
This popular and structured course designed by the Mindfulness Association is a weekly two hour deep dive into the practices of mindfulness & compassion. It teaches participants the skills of developing awareness, flexibility of attention, & slowly helps to develop insight. The course helps us to respond with kindness to our own and others everyday challenges. Rather than our usual habitual & reactive patterns.
Cultivating, “response” – “ability” How we meet the world both internally & externally.
The course is a supportive & inclusive space in which to cultivate mindfulness & compassion practices – with the support and guidance of an experienced teacher.
The course includes a manual, audio recordings & a retreat day.
The course is offered on a rolling basis throughout the year and can be delivered one to one, in small groups, & within organisations.
Please contact me for next course dates.
The Compassion Based Living Course developed by the Mindfulness Association is a gentle progressive exploration into the subject of Compassion & Self-Compassion, and the blocks & resistances that can limit and restrict its cultivation within us.
Drawing from Buddhist psychology, neuroscience & evolutionary psychology, the course unfolds gently over 8 weeks to support us in the process of developing our innate ability for compassion. Practicing compassion & self-compassion can enhance our wellbeing on many different levels & help us to develop resilience in the face of life’s challenges & difficulties.
This course is suitable for those with previous mindfulness training.
