Maandag 22 Maart 2021: ' Undertaking the training of non-harming' met Gwénola Herbette (België)

Undertaking the training of non-harming: a continuing task for mindfulness-based program teachers

We need to feel safe and welcome to be in capacity to learn. How do we create a safe environment in our mindfulness-based programs? This is a huge topic which invites us, as teachers, to reflect on again and again. DATE: Monday 22/03/2021 17:00h-18:30h. (Zoom link onderaan deze tekst) This covers several aspects, among which:

  • is it a good time to take the program? Is the process of informed consent met?

  • how much do we see people’s individuality in our groups and welcome them, being sensitive to diversity and to trauma?

  • to what extent do we trust and honor the self-sovereignty of each person while setting up guidelines?

  • as teachers and human beings, how do we meet the suffering in ourselves and others, with openness, kindness and groundedness?

Based on the richness of our experiences, we’ll explore these facets in an interactive format and be together to inquire, to listen and to learn from each other.
