About This Event
We all want love and happiness to illuminate our lives, but, without recognizing it, we often stand in our own way. This program focuses on working kindly with our difficult emotions by cultivating the practices of mindfulness—becoming more aware of our reactions—and compassion, especially self-compassion. These time-honored practices, which are now confirmed by science to be effective, are being adopted worldwide and integrated into spiritual and religious programs, healthcare facilities, schools at all levels, and even the military.
In this experience-based, interactive workshop, you will:
Learn time-tested mindfulness and compassion practices as a means of coping with difficult emotions
Establish a personal mindfulness program
Learn to develop a wholesome, kinder relationship with your critical inner voice
Explore why it is essential to hold difficult emotions with compassion
Be able to take these powerful practices home so that they can support you long-term in your daily life
Mindfulness practice can powerfully complement therapy work. If you are in therapy, it is advisable to consult with your therapist before enrolling. An ability to stay with your difficult emotions as they arise is a prerequisite for enrollment.
This program is appropriate for newcomers as well as seasoned mindfulness practitioners. Individual conferences with Susan will be available. Silence will be encouraged outside workshop sessions.
Everyone should take this course. It gives you a new way to create some space for yourself and others. Everyone can benefit from mindfulness, compassion, and working with your difficult emotions. — Jessy Farrell
