Description

  • Techniques to help clients break through self-criticism, insecurity and depression
  • The fascinating convergence between modern science and mindfulness practice
  • Practices to re-energize your work and increase your effectiveness
  • Explanation of self-compassion as vital element of mindfulness practice that is often overlooked in the mental health field

Self-compassion might be the single most important skill for effectively dealing with difficult emotions. In fact, a lack of self-compassion is one of the strongest predictors for anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. This seminar will equip you with tools to build the capacity for self-compassion in your clients. We will explore the convergence between modern science and mindfulness practices that can be used to build self-compassion in the present, and can be applied to heal past trauma. You will be taught a thorough, yet accessible, orientation to cognitive science and neuroscience as they relate to mindfulness.
This seminar recording consists of highly engaging and experiential learning that will give you a firsthand experience of how these practices can build and sustain well-being. You will have an opportunity to practice guiding others and being guided through mindfulness and self-compassion exercises with the support of skilled supervision. Take home the Toolbox for Teaching Mindfulness and the Toolbox for Teaching Self-Compassion, allowing you to immediately incorporate what you have learned into your work with clients.

Tim was interviewed about practices for self-compassion by the Huffington Post, and writes for major mental health websites such as MadInAmerica.com.

He developed and teaches “dialogue-based mindfulness therapy,” a technique for teaching mindfulness and self-compassion in which the client is guided through a meditation while giving the clinician feedback about their experience in real-time. The clinician uses this feedback to adjust and custom tailor the meditation instructions in order to ensure the client learns the technique effectively.

In 2005, Tim was ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh into the Order of Interbeing after many years of practicing in that tradition. He leads meditation retreats around the U.S. and teaches regularly at Morning Sun Mindfulness Center in NH.
