Course description

This foundation course is intended to give an introduction to the basic theory and practice of mindfulness within psychotherapeutic practice. The course introduces participants to key therapeutic contemplative practices and relational skills, grounded in the practice of Core Process Psychotherapy, one of the original mindfulness-based therapeutic forms. Its curriculum draws on thirty years of experience in offering psychotherapy trainings based on mindfulness practice.  It invites us to listen at depth to self, other and to the relational field through adapting ancient Buddhist mindfulness practices for working jointly in relationship.

Course participants are encouraged to develop the ability to deepen into a state of presence and learn to bring this state of awareness into relationship.  Mindfulness-in-relationship then becomes the ground of enquiry into self and interpersonal process.  In this endeavour, mindfulness practices are integrated with western psychodynamics and psychotherapy skills, a fully integrated approach.  The main focus is a cultivation of qualities of presence, compassionate awareness and enquiry that we can bring to self and other within relationship, and the extension of this both into our clinical work and in our everyday lives.  It will be of interest to therapists in many fields of practice including psychotherapy, counselling, practitioners of complementary and orthodox medicine, body-oriented therapies such as Craniosacral Therapy and mindfulness-based practitioners in general.
