This course, based on the work of Neff and Germer, endeavours to teach you the three main components of self-compassion: Self-Kindness, Awareness of Our Common Humanity, and Mindfulness. It runs over 8 weekly sessions and a half day practice session, and is suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners of Mindfulness and Meditation.
The Key Aims include:
- Deepening your personal practice of responding to difficult emotions with
mindfulness and compassion.
Embodying a mindful and compassionate stance towards challenges in life.
Enriching and sustain mindfulness practice and mindful movement.
Making space for simply being.
Finding new space for inspiration and nourishment.
There will be a chance to look at what is familiar and also consider what is innovative for us. The course will involve periods of complete silence, as well as time for sharing and for enabling a feeling of connection with fellow participants. There will be a mix of guided practice within meditation, walking meditation, group work and opportunities for one-to-one work with teachers.
