Description

A growing body of research suggests that health professionals benefit from Mindfulness Based Interventions and Loving-Kindness Meditations that increase their Self-Compassion, since these practices can strengthen their relationships with clients, reduce the chances of burnout and increase overall wellbeing (Bellinghasu, Jones &Hutton, 2014).  Applying Mindfulness and Self-Compassion practices in personal life, has the capacity to enhance professional effectiveness and increase longevity.

Mindfulness and Self-Compassion interventions have been shown to strongly enhance personal relationships, self-care and wellbeing, as well as reduce levels of depression, anxiety and pain.  Mindfulness is cultivating a moment to moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment, through a gentle, non-judgmental lens.  Self-Compassion is extending compassion to one's self in instances of perceived inadequacy, failure, or general suffering.  It comprises of the conscious extension of kindness, care, warmth and understanding toward oneself when struggling in life, as opposed to beratement or self-criticism.  Combined Mindfulness and Self-Compassion can create a powerful attitudinal shift to enhance our resilience and coping abilitiy.

This one-day workshop draws on the work of Christopher Germer and Kirsten Neff, developers of the MSC program and leaders in this area of therapy and research, Prof Paul Gilbert (creator of Compassion Focused Therapy) and Linda Graham (author of Bouncing Back: Rewiring your Brain for Maximum Resilience & Well-Being), and the global movement of Authentic Relating. Participants will have the opportunity of an experiential introduction to harnessing the power of the mind to deal gracefully with difficult emotions, care for others consistently and compassionately, move with ease between personal and professional endeavours, and relate more authenticity in personal and professional life.

Participants will be introduced practical strategies for increasing emotional resilience and emotional regulation, changing a self-critical mindset, calming irritation, frustration, impatience and shame, increasing acceptance and positive motivation and relating to others more authentically.  Guidance through six powerful meditations that can be practiced in daily life and taught to clients will be facilitated during the day.

“With mindfulness, our natural compassion grows. We can see that we are all carrying our own burden of tears. You and everyone you meet are sharing in some measure of the pain present on the planet….It is by first practicing self-compassion that you find not only a way to hold your own struggles and sorrows in your heart—but through them you learn how to connect with the sufferings and sorrows of all those around.”    (Jack Kornfield)
