Mindfulness and self-compassion help us to be aware in a non-judgemental way and to attend to ourselves with loving-kindness. Mindfulness and self-compassion consist of many formal and informal practices which we can be used in our everyday life to find balance and equanimity. Together mindfulness and self-compassion are radical new ways of relating to ourselves. Many have found that as they progress in their mindfulness and self-compassion practices, they uncover a great source of strength, courage and empowerment.
Through the practice of Mindfulness, we become the wise Observer of our lives, so we can respond skilfully rather than react mindlessly. It is a practice which allows us to wake up to our life as it is, rather than as we wish it or judge it to be. Self-compassion, in addition, is about developing a practice of goodwill, where we learn to relate to ourselves in our mind in a way that is caring and nurturing. Both mindfulness and self-compassion can become a bridge to a live which become more intentional, imbued with our core values.
In this experiential workshop, we will invite you to review your mindfulness and self-compassion practices in lines with your values and ethics. We will explore together how some practices can be a bridge to access your inner knowingness. We will present additional practices to strengthen your compassion for yourself and others.
A section of the workshop will also look at caregiver fatigue and burnout. We will explore mindfulness and self-compassion practices that have been found to have a protective effect on health professionals promoting well-being and resilience.
The format of the workshop is very experiential and will consist of self-reflective/self-practice exercises as well as meditations taken from Mindful-Based Stress Reduction(MBSR), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and Compassionate mind training or Compassion-Focused Therapy(CFT) and Compassion Cultivation Training-Stanford (CCare).
