Mindfulness & compassion have been described as two wings of a bird - both are needed to truly soar. During this day long workshop you will learn some of the practices and attitudes of mindfulness and self-compassion that you can take with you into your daily life AND into your work with your clients. Through the three traditional pathways of knowledge - study, reflection, & practice - we will explore the concepts, learn to embody the practices, and develop an understanding of how they can be useful in addressing the causes of human suffering.

*This seminar includes electronic copies of techniques that you can immediately begin using for yourself or with clients!*

Objectives:

1) State how mindfulness and self-compassion can be applied to mental health treatment
2) Define "mindfulness"
3) Name and practice at least two techniques, designed to cultivate mindfulness and self-compassion, that you can use in session with clients
4) Identify one technique that you can apply to your daily life, outside of therapy
5) Describe the three pathways of knowledge


About the Speaker:


Dr. Tracy Ochester is a licensed psychologist in private practice in Kansas City, a Certified Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Teacher, a Trained Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention Teacher, and a Registered Yoga Teacher. She also serves as the Heart-Mind Coordinator for the Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness, a nonsectarian organization supporting the practice of mindfulness in the heartland. Her journey into mindfulness was inspired by her desire to help clients reduce their suffering. She learned firsthand, through personal practice, its beneficial effects on wellbeing. Ashtanga yoga has provided a doorway into greater mindfulness and self-compassion, making the stillness of sitting meditation more accessible. She believes that we are best able to alleviate the suffering of others when we attend to our own and she takes great joy in sharing the gifts of mindfulness with others.
