Imagine what it would be like for your clients to be without anxiety about their imperfections. World renowned meditation teacher, clinician and best-selling author Tara Brach, Ph.D., will teach you the specific practices your clients need to become more mindful and compassionate toward the “unforgivable” parts within themselves -- and how to help our clients free themselves from “the prison of shame and self-aversion”. Radical acceptance is the path to freedom your clients seek.
Tara Brach has taught clinicians around the globe how to effectively combine therapy with meditation and mindfulness to transform their practice. Therapy helps us to recognize and accept our patterns and imperfections, while meditation gradually opens us to the confidence that we have an inner refuge, a way to hold our lives in our own caring and healing presence. This is the groundwork for deeply enriching clinical practice and offering strategies to clients that increase self-trust, self-compassion, confidence, understanding and resilience.
You will spend the day engaged in guided meditations, experiential exercises and conversation that will teach you specific meditations to heal fear, judgement and unforgiving behaviors. Radical Acceptance is the capacity to see clearly what is happening in the moment, and accept what we see. In this workshop you will explore how the practices of mindfulness and compassion allow us to genuinely embrace our lives, and connectedness with others.
One of the deepest forms of suffering is the pain of feeling that “something is wrong with me”. The feeling of falling short, like a toxic gas we continually breathe, makes it difficult to be truly intimate with others and at home in our own body, heart and mind. Whether in the shape of chronic self-judgment, depression, anxiety or gripping shame, feelings of deficiency prevent us from living and loving fully.
