July Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.

The workshop is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners 🙂

Tickets are non-refundable or transferable – but you can certainly buy one as a gift, the person just needs to give the name the ticket was booked under when they check in with me on the day 🙂

Thank you.

Bryon Katie’s ‘The Work’ retreat

In a first for Immeasurable Minds, Bridgeen will be teaming up with Northern Ireland’s only trained Byron Katie  practioner, Tony Carlin.

Tony, has been a Certified Facilitator of the Work since 2011 and has introduced the Work to a wide variety of groups including teachers, teacher trainers, managers, prisoners, students, youth workers, medical practices, teenagers and the general public.

He also has many 25+ years of experience facilitating conflict resolution, teamwork, communication skills, stress management, leadership and experiential learning.

The retreat will be framed with practice of mindfulness as led by Bridgeen. Tony will be introducing you to this form of mindful self-inquiry which is ‘the work’.

This retreat will offer a comprehensive introduction to the Work of Byron Katie. The Work is meditation using inquiry. It defines stress as an alarm clock letting us know we are out of balance and that we are believing something that isn’t true. When we discover a truer perspective we are more at peace and more able to deal with whatever issue we face. This is done through identifying what we believe and inquiring into the truth of that belief. It is designed to be a checkmate for the mind when it is creating suffering. Anyone can learn it. All that is required is an open mind.

To find our more about this approach and Byron Katie check out www.thework.com

Bridgeen and Tony have worked together in past 10 years on projects like Towards Understanding and Healing and the Mastery Foundation.  Both are really excited to offer this unique retreat.

You can also pay offline using the various other payment methods – paying by installments is also possible. Just get in touch with Bridgeen directly or email your prefered option to mindfulmind@outlook.com
