Event description

Description

Dr. Steven Hickman will be leading this workshop specifically for MSC teachers. Program activities include talks, meditation, experiential exercises, and group discussion. This program will enable participants to:

• Develop a greater sense of embodied presence in guiding inquiry in MSC

• Explore the differences between ‘asking’ versus ‘telling’ when engaging in inquiry

• Appreciate the subtleties of inquiry revealed in an embodied approach to inquiry

• Learn new perspectives on approaching inquiry from colleagues in small group and dyadic work

• Deepen the skills of teaching Mindful Self-Compassion

The intention of this workshop is to explore the territory of enquiry in MSC in order to develop the capacity to respond more mindfully and compassionately in the crucial moments of engagement with our participants, learning to grow more comfortable with the shifting ground of the unknown in our classes. If the practice of enquiry is a growing edge for you as a teacher, this workshop is for you.

We will work experientially, with an emphasis on the exploration of the foundations of enquiry in our own internal conversation and how this translates into the inter-relational space as Loving Connected Presence. We will be exploring teaching in relation to Paul Gilbert’s 3 Affect Regulation Systems and learning the art of ‘asking’ rather than ‘telling.’ Participants will practice inquiry together in dyads and small groups before moving into larger groups where they are invited to role play some of the challenges that can arise as they teach. Our intention is to create a safe and supportive space where teachers can share their insights and their struggles together in recognition of our common humanity, honoring the fact that we are all on a journey with Mindful Self-Compassion.
