Buddhist psychology offers us a different perspective on our work with difficult emotions and experiences. These difficult mind-states are referred to as “Hindrances”. Hindrances destabilize us. They cover our vulnerability and cloud our ability to see clearly. They interfere with our capacity to connect. The good news is that hindrances are not the problem. It is our response that is problematic and we can work with this.

In this workshop we will learn skills to respond and attend to our internal experience as difficult emotions, or hindrances arise. We will teach and demonstrate the practices of “pausing”, “naming”, “active investigation” and “compassionate presence”. We will draw upon Buddhist psychology as a resource. These practices support stability and presence. They also cultivate spontaneity and resilience and are applicable to any clinical style or orientation.

This training is designed for therapists and mental health practitioners who are interested in integrating mindful awareness, meditation, and compassion practices with their therapeutic work. It is also open for anyone who wants to explore relational mindfulness! This is an experiential program. We will draw upon both our personal and professional experiences. We will utilize group and dyad interaction as well as action exploration, (including role play, role reversal and empty chair exercise). Mindful awareness practices will be integrated throughout the training.
