In this session we will be able to see that emotions are transient – they will pass, or change in strength, and do not always need to be reacted to.
Mindfulness is a practice that is becoming more and more widely used. If a regular practice is developed, mindfulness can help with us feeling less overwhelmed by life - more responsive to life, rather than being pulled all over the place by our reactions.
We think about how important it is to be kind and compassionate to other people, but we often forget about ourselves. In this session, we will discuss why self-compassion is so important, to enable us to be compassionate to others.
This half day will focus on mindful communication - how we can bring a mindfulness focus into our relationships.
Why practice self-compassion - isn't it selfish? As Ruby Wax points out: "if we don't learn to be compassionate to ourselves first, we can't feel it for anyone else".
