With Mal Huxter and Liz Turnbull
In mindfulness and stillness we can cultivate the heart qualities of loving kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity. These mutually supportive states enable us to transform psychological and interpersonal suffering. A growing body of scientific evidence supports the health and relationship benefits of training in mindfulness, compassion and loving kindness. Recent therapeutic and educational approaches such as Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB), Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) and Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT) are gaining popularity with therapists and educators. Skill development grounded in contemporary and Buddhist psychology will be our focus, with plenty of guidance, meditation practice, mindful movement and space for integration and rest. Anyone with some experience in mindfulness meditation is welcome. This retreat is suitable for both personal and professional development for therapists, health professionals and educators.
This is a qualifying prerequisite for the MSC Teacher Training.
