Mindfulness touches every aspect of daily life. We provide a range of tools to apply mindfulness in contact with breath, body, emotions, mind states and the senses.
Empathy allows for a deep connection with all forms of life.We apply practices of the heart to explore ways to relate to people, animals and the environment.
Our words have power.We will explore practices of speaking and listening with care and attention.We learn how to explore skillful responses and address deep issues.
We learn to facilitate meetings and give guidance to a group in challenging situations. Participants will have the opportunity to give short talks and answer questions.We will develop ways to respond skillfully to the authority and the management of others.
