Shake the Dust will offer you the opportunity to continue to grow in your mindfulness and compassion practice - through revising some basics and offering new perspectives too.
Drawing on Internal Family Systems (IFS), we will work a little more deeply and psychologically to learn more about the parts of ourselves that arise under challenge, and how to support them to become more resilient, open and mature. (IFS is an evidence-based, non-pathologising approach to human experience. It naturally supports the cultivation of awareness and compassion in an intelligent, empowering and skilful way.)
By creating an environment where safety and curiosity can flourish, we will use meditations, exercises, teaching and heart-felt sharing to strengthen our capacity for presence and responsiveness to what matters most in our lives.
