8 weeks starting Thu, 16th Jun, 2022

Compassion is the capacity to be open to the pain and suffering of our self and others accompanied by the wish to seek relief from such suffering. MBCL training explores our natural human capacity to develop compassion in a way that can radically change our lives. In this 8 week course. Maitridarshin will introduce practices, which allow us to develop key aspects of our emotional well-being including warmth, security, acceptance and connectedness. You will need to be familiar with mindfulness meditation to truly benefit from this course.
MBCL can be an emotionally challenging programme, which is why we ask participants to have a consistent, live meditation practice.
The course consists of eight 2 hour weekly sessions. The first week of the course will be followed by a week-off on 23 June and then run through until Thursday 11 August.
