Difficult experiences and feelings can cloud our ability to see clearly. They are painful and often we want to avoid and push them away. When we view them from this small, restricted view we miss the opportunities that they offer – the opportunities to grow and learn. How do we learn to meet them with an attitude of kindness and care?
In this workshop, we will learn skills to respond and attend to our internal experience as difficult emotions, (or “hindrances”) arise.
We will teach and demonstrate the practices of “pausing”, “naming”, “active investigation” and “compassionate presence”. These practices support stability and presence. They also cultivate spontaneity and resilience and are applicable to any clinical style or orientation.
This training is designed for therapists and mental health practitioners who are interested in integrating mindful awareness, meditation, and compassion practices with their therapeutic work. (However, it is also open for anyone who wants to explore.)
This is an experiential program. We draw upon both our personal and professional experiences. We will utilize group and dyad interaction as well as action exploration, (including role play, role reversal, and “empty chair” exercise).
