This continuing education course is designed for clinical social workers and allied disciplinary practitioners to experience how mindfulness can enrich our personal development, create relational attunement, and enhance therapeutic relationships. The workshop will offer an introduction to interpersonal mindfulness through learning the meditation guidelines of Insight Dialogue: Pause – Relax – Open – Trust Emergence – Listen Deeply – Speak the Truth. Much of the stress our clients experience originates in relationships. Actively practicing these guidelines cultivates mindfulness while engaged in relationship. The guidelines are paired with contemplations that inquire into the shared experience of being human. Through guided meditations, talks, participatory exercises, and small group discussions participants will experience the power of mutually established mindfulness and explore integrating the relational aspects of mindfulness and wisdom into their personal experience and professional work.
