1 Day event: 25th October
Do you beat yourself up whenever you make a mistake? Are you always pushing yourself towards a standard of perfection that forever seems to be just beyond your reach? Often we behave towards ourselves more harshly than we ever would to a friend, or colleague and in so doing we increase our levels of stress.
Self-compassion is all about learning to take good care of ourselves with kindness, understanding and wisdom. By learning how to work with our habits and emotions we can adopt a more constructive attitude towards the parts of ourselves we want to change. Funnily enough, this helps to be more compassionate towards others as well.
This workshop will introduce techniques of meditation and compassion training that help to develop self-compassion. These techniques are backed by rigorous scientific research. They are seen to have a beneficial effect on our patterns of stress and the potential to increase individual wellbeing.
Each person will leave the workshop with a set of practical tools that they can immediately apply to their own situation.
The workshop will be delivered in English.

2 Day Event: 14th & 15th November
Everyone experiences stress but it is not something we are trained to deal with. Nowhere do we feel this more strongly than at work. Although stress is responsible for almost half of all work-related illnesses in the UK there is very little support for it. Added to this we are afraid of losing face, which makes it difficult for us to admit to stress at work, even to ourselves.
Our stress response is effective at helping us avoid danger and respond to threat but it has not evolved to fit our modern lifestyle. Triggered by challenging bosses, difficult work colleagues, tight deadlines and heavy workloads this stress response keeps us continuously simmering and unable to fully relax and recharge. To try and cope we develop work habits that are not always helpful for us.
In this workshop we will explore what our stress habits have to show us about how we function at work and where there is room for change. Adopting compassion techniques provides us with new, useful habits, which we learn to apply firstly to ourselves, and then to our work colleagues—both the congenial and the challenging ones! Training in this way it is possible to create a compassionate working environment in which enables people to make clearer decisions, be more innovative and to interact skilfully with their colleagues.
Participants will leave the workshop with a set of practical tools that they can immediately apply in their working lives.
