Skills for Mindful Living Series: Holistic Model of Self-Care Practice – Vancouver Public Only
November 21, 2017 Adler University, Community Hall 2nd Floor, 520 Seymour Street, Vancouver 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM FREE

A free community workshop

We will present a holistic model of self-care that integrates inner work of contemplative practice that is blended with process-oriented psychotherapy, and outer work of body care (including fitness and nutrition).

What you will learn:

Our model is based on a life philosophy that self-care is an ethics practice that cultivates development of the whole person within a multidimensional (thinking, feeling, sensory, and energetic), relational (self-other), and embodied context.

Central to our work is application of compassionate awareness, including self-compassion.
