During this workshop we’ll explore how to bring mindfulness into our relationships at home and at work.
This 3-Day Non-residential Workshop with Dr Rebecca Crane will be taught experientially, with a focus on developing and reflecting on a personal mindfulness meditation practice as the basis for our relationships with others. We will explore the importance of awareness of our internal processes. What happens in our inner world is of importance for developing awareness of our interpersonal patterns.
I have always been particularly interested in the relational aspect of mindfulness practice.– Rebecca Crane
In the context of training teachers to offer MBSR and MBCT I have always emphasized the importance of the embodied relational aspect of the teaching process. This training offers a specific opportunity to investigate this dimension of the work.– Rebecca Crane
The workshop will include:
- Experiential engagement in the core mindfulness practices that are part of MBSR/MBCT: the basis for cultivating the ability to embody mindfulness.
- An overview of the origins and theoretical bases of mindfulness: including the theories and attitudinal foundations behind mindfulness.
- Development of mindful 'presence' in relationship: experiencing and practising how mindful awareness and embodiment can enhance the relationship process and support the ability to be fully present with another.
- Mindfulness and self-care: how mindfulness practice can support us in dealing skilfully with interpersonal challenges.
- Ways to build mindfulness into the process whilst engaging with clients: this course is not about learning how to teach the 8-week course to individuals, but instead exploring the various ways mindfulness skills can be used within your work with individuals.
Rebecca will integrate relevant theory and context on the use of mindfulness in one-to-one work within an experiential training process. Time will be given to guided meditation practice, interpersonal mindfulness practices, silent reflective time and to exploring together in dialogue in small and large groups as we learn through our individual and collective experience. The intention is to create an open, spacious learning environment, which will encourage and support spontaneity and creativity.
This workshop is for everyone who has completed an 8-week MBSR, MBCT or similar course and have an on-going mindfulness practice and:
- who is interested to explore the relevance of mindfulness in their personal relationships or work relationships
- who work one to one, such as coaches, therapists, yoga teachers, physiotherapists, nurses, complementary therapists, teachers, carers, community health workers, etc.
