Your Mindful Heart: A Two-Session, Highly Experiential Course in Mindful Relating for Couples or Individuals

Your Mindful Heart

Do you find that it is often in your interaction with family members and close relations that your mindfulness practice finds juicy challenges?

Your Mindful Heart is a course offered to graduates of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reductions classes or to persons who have a  meditation practice.

This course will introduce participants to mindfulness-based relational skills. Participating in the Your Mindful Heart course, you will have the opportunity to learn how to cultivate your ability to relate with an awakening, compassionate heart.

In this program participants will be introduced to experiential practices to:

  • Remain more mindfully grounded in stressful relational interactions.
  • Identify “hooks” that entangle one in divisive reactions and relational gates that may lead to deeper connections.
  • Bring compassionate awareness to how one’s expectations, fears and judgments can block one’s innate capacity for emotional intimacy.
  • Experience a safer ground within one’s mindful heart that allows one to feel less defensive.
  • Approach one’s loved ones with a “ beginner’s mind” that can be open to new perceptions and possibilities.
  • Participants will have the opportunity to practice their mindful heart skills in the class and in their home practice.

The course will take place on two consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and couples are encouraged to attend together if they like. Individuals are also welcome to attend.
