Mindfulness and Psychotherapy: Sangha Day
"In a secular sense Sangha refers to the community of fellow practitioners: here it means all psychotherapists, health professionals, meditators, and those who are doing compassion-based work who want to deepen and refine their understanding of health, healing and what's possible for the human heart..This program opens out to a community of speakers representing different parts of the country and different facets of clinical practice. Each speaker brings their area of expertise to the wider community of the conference. With this as our direction for the day the presenters further the process of creating ways of exploring and experiencing the interconnected web of ourselves, living with others, with all life, in-the-world. Such an experience of interbeing is a natural expression of mindful mind, compassion for all beings and the wisdom of unbiased awareness.
After completing this program listeners will be able to:
1. Explain how being aware of experiences in the present moment, without grasping onto judgments, is associated with enhanced physiological, psychological, and interpersonal processes.
2. Identify mindful awareness practices that enhance the capacity for integrating mindfulness within clinical psychotherapy and health care practice.
3. Discuss the possible neurobiological roots of mindfulness.
