In the Mindfulness Based Compassionate Living program, devised by Erik van den Brink and Frits Koster, we develop our capacity to navigate the stresses of life by learning to cultivate kindness and compassion to ourselves and to others.
This course is suitable for anyone who has done an eight week Mindfulness course, such as the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program or a Breathworks course.
It consists of eight two and a half hour sessions, spread over a period of eight weeks
Sessions consist of practices designed to foster compassion to ourselves and to others, practices to help activate our soothing systems, and practices which teach us to deal more wisely with difficulties. Participants are encouraged to share their experience of the practices in group discussions.
There is a small amount of theory, looking at why compassion is so important, the reasons that our tricky brains sometimes have so much difficulty with it, and how developing a compassion practice can benefit us physically, emotionally, and in our relationships.
To get the most out of the course, it is important that participants commit to a regular home practice. Handouts and CD’s/ MP3 files are provided to help support this
