Mindful Relating: An Introduction to Hakomi and Loving Presence, Nanaimo, Feb, 1, 2020

Saturday, February 1st, 2020. 10am-4pm at the Bethlehem Centre, Nanaimo, BC

Join us for a gentle, quiet, slow-paced day of self-inquiry and connection with others.  The focus of this experiential workshop is to use mindfulness-based practices in pairs and small groups to discover some of our habitual ways of relating, some of which can unwittingly cause us to get the opposite of what we want!  We will explore ways to access and embody a compassionate state of mind, while relating to others and ourselves.  Together, we practice sustaining and sharing this way of relating, which recognises our human potential for healing, harmony and freedom.

What to expect from the day:

  • Receive some time out to quiet the mind 
  • Gain awareness about yourself through experiential practices in pairs and small groups
  • Experience and sustain a calm and relaxed way of relating to others
  • Find an increased sense of compassion for yourself and others

This workshop is appropriate for anyone working in the helping professions, those interested in mindfulness-based approaches, and anyone who is interested in human relationships and healing.
