Course Description

The ancient art of mindfulness has been practiced for over 2,500 years to address and/or alleviate human suffering. The basic skills of mindfulness focus on three areas, including focusing attention, open monitoring and compassionate acceptance. As practitioners, our clinical focus is to walk “with” our clients in order for them to experience a means of reducing their human suffering. Becoming a mindful therapist allows us the art of walking “with” our clients experientially, fully present and with enhanced awareness. This workshop will explore how one can move in the direction of becoming a mindful-based practitioner within himself or herself, creating a greater openness in how we sit and be with our clients. The art of mindfulness starts within us first before we can share it with others.
