One day workshop

In order to successfully navigate all the stresses and challenges of our lives, we need resilience. Resilience helps us bounce back from difficult situations and even grow stronger and wiser as a result. When combined with the qualities of mindfulness and compassion, you can experience a greater sense of stability and flexibility to live a life with more presence and fulfillment. These are all skills that can be learned and cultivated.
This workshop will include mindfulness practices (meditation, awareness, breathing and mindful movement), along with lectures, discussions, and class exercises. It will integrate traditional contemplative practices with contemporary neuroscience and research on mindfulness, compassion and resilience.
This workshop is suitable for those who have already taken the CCT training and want to explore more, as well as for new participants. No prior meditation experience is required.
The session will draw on the curriculum of the 8-week program called Compassion Cultivation Training developed at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University. It is taught by two certified CCT teachers, Diane Hetrick and Magdalena Szpala.
