It’s often been said that Mindfulness and Compassion are two wings of a bird. You cannot have one without the other. This is especially true in times of difficulty.
The 8-week Compassion Based Living Course is a follow on from the 8-week Mindfulness Based Living Course. It supports further development, of our compassionate self and in my own experience, has improved the relationship I have with myself and those around me.
The course explores cultivating self-compassion and learning a new way of relating to ourselves. Instead of meeting our imperfections and challenges with self-blame or criticism, we learn to become more accepting and kind to ourselves, even in difficult situations. This is developed through a range of guided mindfulness practices, which encourage us to strengthen qualities, including kindness to ourselves and resilience.
Throughout the 8 weeks, you will access a range of guided mindfulness practices and teachings. Some of the topics we will be investigating are:
- Why practice compassion?
- The Compassionate Mess
- It is not our fault – an evolutionary perspective
- Creating conditions of safeness
- Befriending the self-critic
- Finding the compassionate friend within
- The Four Compassionate Qualities
- Widening the circle of compassion
The investment for the 8- week course is £185, which is payable upon booking*.
