Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - V2
May 3, 2016 to Jun 21, 2016
With the mindfulness ‘movement’ come visions and actions devoted to world peace and a more compassionate society. In this 10 week group we adopt an interpersonal focus, emphasizing peaceful, compassionate relationships with self and significant others.
The mindfulness techniques emphasized are shamatha and tonglen, practices devoted to peace-making and healing exchanges where all people derive benefits.
These approaches are integrated with an interpersonal approach to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, changing the distorted thoughts and emotions that regularly occur and result in unnecessary internal and interpersonal conflict.
This combination is further integrated with recent cognitive and neurophysiological research on mindfulness and CBT, where indices of brain health are used as scientific validations of subjective processes and their benefits.
Fee: $150.00 for the 8 session program ($60 for students with valid ID).
