A one-day workshop with John MacFadyen
9.30 - 5.00pm 14 October 2018
Wellspring, 13 Smith’s Place, Edinburgh

This workshop will Introduce participants to the concepts of  ‘humility’,  ‘remorse’ and ‘compassion as they relate to the process of ‘working through’ past traumas.

What therapeutic value do these concepts have as heart felt approaches to transcending the emotional confinements of ‘shame’, ‘blame’ and ‘guilt’. 
Corrective re-experience is a lifelong task of the self, requiring higher developmental awareness, patient endurance and a depth of self compassion.

Mindfulness is a mind training which involves awareness, attention and intention

Regular practice grows inner spaciousness, conscious awareness, and a deepening sense of presence

Mindfulness cultivates a more compassionate way to relate to self, others and the world

It builds our capacity to respond to life events rather than react
