WhoTeacher: Mindfulness Association Teachers
The aim with this CPD weekend is to expand and enrich our capacity as Mindfulness teachers to effectively interact and communicate with program participants. Qualities associated with silent meditation like mental stability, calmness, kindness and clear and spacious awareness are developed in practice with others. By integrating these meditative qualities directly into relationship one experiences greater freedom interpersonally and increased ability for attuned responses with others.
During the CPD weekend we will explore what enhances empathic resonance interpersonally by deepening the skill of inquiry, using the four foundations of Mindfulness to see how we buy into the story and how we can deconstruct our conditioned responses. We will also use the group as an object for contemplation to enable insight into our social habitual patterns, our projections and triggers for reactivity. Being aware of our habitual patterns, and seeing the layers underneath our reactivity, creates freedom of choice and the ability to experiment with new more attuned behaviour to our present reality both internally and interpersonally.
Through deepening awareness we will encourage participants to explore their own case-studies through the use of role-play. This will be particularly helpful where we may have felt challenged during the practice of mindful inquiry or mindful presence in relation to another during our teaching practice.
