NDET 6230E - Mindful Self-Compassion


Credit(s): 2.00

This is an eight-week course with a half-day silent retreat designed to explicitly teach skills of self-compassion. This experiential course uses meditations, informal practice, group discussion and dyads, and homework exercises. A variety of guided meditations (loving-kindness, affectionate breathing, giving and receiving meditation [11 meditations total]), informal practices for use in daily life (soothing touch, self-compassionate letter writing, compassionate listening, self-compassion for care givers [18 total]) are taught and practiced. Self-compassion is evoked during the classes using experiential exercises, and home practices are taught to help develop the habit of self-compassion. Students will be asked to incorporate evidence-based literature into reflective journals.
