       Mindful Self-Compassion

    Mindful Self-Compassion

    The University of Westminster is delighted to be running of the UK’s first ever 8 week ‘Mindful Self-Compassion’ courses based on the ground-breaking work of Kristen Neff and the clinical expertise of Christopher Germer starting on Wednesday 18th February 2015. The course has been subsidized so we are able to offer it at £100 in total!

    Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically-supported, 8-week (9 session including a half day retreat), training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness. Research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits.

    What to Expect: Program activities include meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. MSC includes 8 weekly sessions of 3 hours each, in addition to a 4-hour retreat.  Prior to registering, participants should plan to attend every session and practice mindfulness and self-compassion at least 30 minutes per day throughout the program.

    The dates for the sessions are:
    Session 1. Wednesday 18th February - 5.45 (arrival) for a 6pm start -9pm
    Session 2. Wednesday 25th February - 6-9pm
    Session 3. Wednesday 4th March 6pm -9pm
    Session 4. Wednesday 11th March 6-9pm

       Health, Wholeness & Healing Conference

    Health, Wholeness & Healing Conference

    Venue: Holy Trinity Church and Community Centre, Lysander Road, Yeovil, Somerset, BA2 2BU

    9am - 5pm; cost (including lunch) earlybird £20 before 15th Feb; thereafter £30. Registration essential. Enquires to: johanna.halla@bathwells.anglican.org

    Speakers include Revd Dr Jeremy Swayne, Professor Paul Dieppe, Revd. Canon Dr James Woodward and Dr Ross Byson.

    Healthcare is increasingly driven  by clinical outcomes, budgets, targets and pokitical constraints. This is at the expense of whole-person care and personal well-being - for both healthcare professionals and patients alike. Could the Church and other Faith Communities collaborate better with Healthcare to remedy this dis-ease? The purpose of the conference is to explore the meaning of helting and the interface between Healthcare and Fatih communities in general and the Christian Healing Ministry in particular.

       Therapy in Motion: Movement, non-verbal communication and recovery from trauma

    Therapy in Motion: Movement, non-verbal communication and recovery from trauma

    Venue: Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre, Thornhaugh Street, London, SW1H OXG

    A 2-day conference with Roz Carroll, Fabiano Culora, Dr Frances LaBarre, Dr Pat Ogden, Heather Mason, Dr Tamara Russell

    This conference brings together practitioners at the cutting edge of movement theory and its application in psychotherapy. It features the fruits of interdisciplinary research in fields such as attachment, developmental psychology, anthropology, ethology, yoga, cross-cultural studies, dance, mindfulness, medicine, performing arts, somatic psychology, neuroscience and martial arts. Study in all these areas has contributed to a profoundly deepened understanding of non-verbal behaviour both as a source of meaning and as a ubiquitous shaper of therapeutic communication.
