Experiencing Compassionate Mind Training From The Inside Out – Byron Bay
November 20 @ 9:30 am - November 22 @ 5:00 pm
Presenters: Paul Gilbert & James Bennett-Levy
This self-experiential workshop, focused on personal practice of compassionate mind training, will help participants to cultivate their compassionate mind. It will provide a direct experience of mindfulness and compassion practices drawn from a synthesis of Western therapeutic and Buddhist approaches as outlined in Paul Gilbert’s books, The Compassionate Mind (2009) and Mindful Compassion (2013). By integrating mindfulness and the secular understanding of mind awareness with different practices of compassion cultivation, you will experience a step by step approach to cultivating compassion motivation and the inner compassionate self.
Although not essential it is preferable for participants to have previously attended compassion focused therapy (CFT) training, as the focus is on personal practice and we shall not be spending much time explaining the principles of CFT.
