This workshop will give you an introduction to the main Mindfulness meditation practices. These are designed to enable you - with continued practice – to become more aware of each moment in your life. We often find ourselves on “automatic pilot” or become distracted by our internal storylines and so tend to stay stuck in our habitual patterns. Mindfulness offers us a new approach in which we learn to turn towards our experience from moment-to-moment, whether the experience is difficult or not. With training we are able to respond to life situations rather than react, and also learn to appreciate and enjoy our lives more fully. For our work in the therapy room this means that we can be more present with our clients and also with what goes on within ourselves. Mindfulness engenders an attitude of gentleness and acceptance towards our experience as it is, and complements the biodynamic approach.
This CPD is suitable for Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Complementary Therapits and other Health Care Professional. Also open to anyone interested in the field.
