A Personal Practice Workshop
with Dr. Paul Gilbert & Dr. Dennis Tirch
An Intensive Compassion Focused Therapy Training and Meditation Retreat
AT THE VICEROY CENTRAL PARK HOTEL, NY
AUGUST 19 -AUGUST 21, 2016
Supercharge your psychotherapy and cultivate your inner wisdom, strength and commitment with Mindful Compassion training this Summer:
This experiential workshop retreat will focus on personal practice, allowing participants to have a direct experience of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and to benefit from the strength of several core CFT practices.
Together we will directly experience mindfulness and compassion practices drawn from a synthesis of Western therapeutic and Buddhist approaches taught by world renowned psychologist and CFT founder, Dr. Paul Gilbert and Buddhist Psychology and CFT expert, Dr. Dennis Tirch. By integrating mindfulness into the practice of compassion, we will find a step by step approach to cultivating our inner compassionate selves and living our lives with deep purpose and courage.
This workshop will be full of simple, yet powerful, personal practice exercises. This training will give participants a direct experience of how being compassionate towards self and others can transform our minds and lives. We will explore how cultivating mindful compassion helps us to experience more self-warmth, safeness and acceptance of ourselves and others.
Here are some examples of unsolicited and voluntary participant feedback from past workshop/retreats:
"Loved it, loved it, loved it! Relaxed yet rigorous training - loved the interaction with delegates and facilitators. Life changing - empowered by the dynamic tools we have gained, inspired 'to the be the change that I want to see in the world.'"
"Transformative. Nothing will look quite the same, at least for a while"
"Paul is so full of life and wisdom"
"Dennis, I hesitate to say that a workshop can change my life, but this has been a riveting experience. The most meaningful training I've attended in 25 years."
