MINDFULNESS & SELF-COMPASSION
This certified Intensive 4 day Mindfulness & Self-Compassion program offers an intense experience and is a journey: an adventure in self-discovery and self-kindness, a practical training in compassion for oneself and others. The program is focused on giving you a felt-sensed experience of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, and consists of both formal and informal exercises in both fields. You will learn how to twist and enhance exercises to fit them to your life and everyday situations.
Rapidly expanding research has clearly demonstrated that Mindfulness and Self-Compassion are closely linked to our mental health, emotional resilience, joy and the ability to create warm and supportive relationships, as well as reducing levels of stress, anxiety and depression
What is Mindfulness ?
“Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally… and then I sometimes add, in the service of self-understanding and wisdom.” says Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder
It provides simple but powerful route and tools for getting ourselves unstuck, back in touch with our own wisdom and vitality.
What is Self-Compassion ?
Self-compassion is taking care of oneself with the same openhearted support that you would give a loved one when needed. It is the emotional attitude of mindfulness when we come in contact with suffering.
Mindfulness says, "Open to your suffering with spacious awareness and acceptance, and it will change." Self-compassion adds, "Be kind to yourself in the midst of suffering and it will change."
Mindfulness asks, "What do I know?” and self-compassion asks, "What do I need?"
The emphasis of the program being on enhancing our own emotional resources to meet challenges. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our imperfections, forgive ourselves, and respond to ourselves and others with care and respect, and be fully human.
