Mindful awareness, coupled with compassion practices, teaches us to acknowledge suffering more fully and to hold it compassionately. We see that all humans suffer from loneliness, anger, confusion, frustration and sorrow. We also learn that our shared suffering unites us. There are no strangers. 

In this workshop we will teach specific practices drawn from eastern compassion and meditation teaching. These practices train us how to hold our difficulties in a safe and caring environment. They help us relax and settle into a clear awareness of our capacity for compassion.

We will be using techniques derived from psychodrama and sociometry as our primary tools, furthering our investigation into what arises from our meditations.

Participants will learn to:

  1. Describe the “internal holding environment” and two conditions that develop and support it.
  2. Utilize two projective techniques: intra-personal social atom and inter-personal social atom.
  3. Utilize the tool of “naming” to support therapeutic presence.
