Recently there has been a lot of research into the effects of compassion on our ability to cope and there is significant evidence that one of the keys to successfully managing our everyday lives and to living more productive and fulfilling lives is the ability to feel and show compassion to ourselves and to those around us. There is also evidence that compassion can be cultivated and learned; Emory University in the US has put together a course called cognitive-based compassion training which has had very good results.
This workshop introduces compassion as a resilience strategy for everyday life and provides participants with the tools to identify and utilize resources to enhance resilience and increased capacity for compassionate living. The course material is based on the Emory University premise and draws on work from Kristin Neff, Sharon Saltzberg, Paul Gilbert, Karen Armstrong and The Dalai Lama.
In our busy lives, it is easy to get rushed and overwhelmed. This workshop provides participants with insight into the importance of creating and maintaining balance. Participants will have the opportunity to identify imbalances in their own lives and put together a tailored strategy to create a sustainable plan to restore balance.
Workshops related to mindfulness, resilience, compassion and patient-centredness can be tailored to suit your team or company’s needs.
