Three Pillars of Mindfulness- Self Awareness, Self Acceptance and Self Love
Clinicians are personally affected by the plight of patients under their care. The voluntary or involuntary nature of trauma, pain, and suffering leave deep indelible marks in the minds and hearts of professionals and clinicians who spend a large portion of their working life dealing with the needs of their patients and clients. Some situations induce tears, others can enrage and unnerve and still others might bring a sense of helplessness and frustration.
Many cases bring up questions which may remain unresolved and disturbing, on a day to day basis. This seminar aims to provide tools to improve the long term, mental, emotional health and wellbeing of clinicians and their patients; techniques to alleviate trauma, stress, anxiety; and methodologies to encourage peace and calm to prevail in all situations.
Area of Focus
Self Awareness, Self Love and Self Acceptance are three pillars of Mindfulness which will be our primary focus in this seminar. Behavioral skills can be enhanced when these three pillars of Mindfulness are fully embraced by clinicians and management teams and extended to patients, staff, coworkers and the public.
We will begin this Journey of Mindfulness, exploring successful evidence-based techniques and strategies for practical intervention; with the ultimate goal of reaching positive long term benefits and deep healing impact.
You will have a chance to participate in the exercises to gain firsthand, personal knowledge of their potencies. You will also pair with other participants in the group for exchanges that enhance your direct personal experience.
We will marry these mindfulness techniques; Self Awareness, Self Acceptance and Self Love, with the primary concept described in Somatic Psychology – the premise that the needs of the body, mind and emotion can be addressed as a somatic unit in order to bring on deeper and wider range of healing.
You will gain an understanding of the invisible layers of energy trapped inside the physical body, the mind and the emotions and the havoc they wreak – especially in the behavioral and cognitive area. We will focus on fully familiarizing you with the powerful ways that the tools of Mindfulness can lead to the release of those trapped energies and enhance the restoration of behavioral and cognitive health.
