The ONLINE 8-Week Compassion Based Living Course (CBLC)
“Compassion isn’t some kind of self improvement project or ideal that we’re trying to project or ideal that we’re trying to live up to. Having compassion starts and ends with having compassion for all those unwanted parts of ourselves. All those imperfections that we don’t even want to look at” (Pemma Chodron)
Would you like to explore the possibility of:
• Being more compassionate and less critical towards yourself
• Being more open and compassionate to others
• Deepening your mindfulness practice
This course offers tried and tested ways and practices for integrating compassion in all that we do.
Developed by the Mindfulness Association, this experiential and secular course offers a continuing pathway after a training in mindfulness, and draws on insights from Neuroscience, Evolutionary Psychology and Mahayana Buddhism.
Through mindful self-compassion and compassionate imagery, we cultivate positive emotions as a way of building up an inner resource, from which we can approach the difficulties that are part and parcel of being alive.
We then approach the self-critic: that persistent inner voice that is harsh and condemning, and always finding fault in what we do. What it would be like to cultivate an inner voice that is kind and supportive, and to live life from this place, rather than from a place of self-criticism?
As there is a strong emphasis on the experiential nature of the course, there are home practice suggestions between the sessions that include regular mindfulness and compassion practice and daily life exercises.
This course is designed as a follow on course for those who have completed an eight week mindfulness training or similar.
The Course Fee is £200/£170 concessions
