Description: Caring for the Caregiver: A Mindfulness Programme for Compassionate Self Care - A six-week MBLC (Mindfulness Based Living Course) held online via Zoom Starting March 16th to April 20th from 11am-12:30pm.
Just some of the course themes:
What is Mindfulness & Why Practice it?
This session explores the definitions of mindfulness and its application in the workplace. It also provides the opportunity to explore what it might be like to settle a busy mind.
Acceptance and Self Compassion for Resilience
Within our mindfulness training, acceptance is anything but passive. Acceptance means to turn towards that which is difficult and respond to life's challenges with compassion and care. In this way, we choose to move forward with skilful action, rather than be governed by our habitual reactions to stressful situations.
The Importance of Intention
Setting an intention is like pointing a compass in the direction we want to go. Companies have their vision and mission statements. What is yours?
Cultivating Positive Traits
It is common knowledge in the world of neuroscience that the mind has a negativity bias. It's not our fault, rather a product of the evolved brain and its need to survive. This negativity bias can surface in the form of an inner critic, an over developed threat system, stress and anxiety. The good news is we can address the bias through practices that rewire the brain.
