In recent scientific studies we understand better how a compassionate mind influences our brains, bodies and the way we relate to ourselves and food.
In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and experience different compassion-based meditation practices which nourish the heart qualities, both for health care professionals as their clients.
These heart-full meditations will be offered as a home assignment after the first session and practiced on a daily basis throughout the following week.
In part one of the series, we offer an introduction to heart-full-ness that will provide participants with a better understanding of these effective qualities, its history and benefits. In the second part of the series, there is time for sharing and an opportunity to learn from each other what they've noticed in the past week.
The attendees have the chance to evaluate and discuss the heart-based meditations which were offered as a home assignment after the first session. In part 2, there will be further deepening of the compassion-based model for individuals with eating issues (working with resistance, self-criticism, shame, difficult emotions).
