Research shows that motivating ourselves through kindness, rather than criticism increases our happiness and reduces anxiety and depression. Compassion training can help us move through life in a richer way. It can help us manage difficult life experiences with generosity rather than harshness and can support us in feeling more connected and less alone. This 8-week course is a follow-on course from MBSR. It aims to deepen the benefits of a mindfulness practice by exploring practices that cultivate compassion for ourselves and others.The course focuses on our soothing system.
The course is 8 weeks long and each class runs for 2.5 hours. This is complemented by a 3.5-hour practice session on a Sunday. The course will be made up of a mixture of guided practice, discussion, teacher input and exercises. There will be a daily home practice using audio recordings and encouragement to do some journalling. The course will be offered just once a year.
