Jane and James Baraz

Being Present for Your Life

A Mindfulness Meditation Retreat led by Jane and James Baraz

July 1–8, 2018

in Rahden, Germany

How much are you present for your own life? Most of us spend more time in our own inner world—worrying about the future, replaying the past, or lost in fantasy—than experiencing what life is offering to us right now. The present moment is where we can most directly be intimate with our life—touched by beauty and intimacy, while learning through the difficult lessons how to open our hearts.

Rick Hanson

Positive Neuroplasticity Training 2018

Taught by Rick Hanson, Ph.D.

April 27–30, 2018

in Freiburg/Germany

This experiential program is about building a strong, healthy, and happy brain. A study on it found that participants learned how to turn everyday experiences into lasting inner strengths, such as resilience, self-worth, feeling loved, compassion, and happiness. This mindful internalization of psychological resources can help with anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, disappointment, loss, loneliness, and shame – and it supports well-being, effectiveness, satisfying relationships, emotional healing, and spiritual practice.

Ronald D. Siegel

Mindfulness in Psychotherapy – A way to Wisdom and Compassion

Intensive seminar led by Ronald D. Siegel, Psy.D.

May 10–13, 2018

in Freiburg/Germany

Mindfulness practices were originally designed to alleviate suffering and cultivate well-being by intentionally developing wisdom and compassion. Yet until recently mental health professionals haven’t tapped this promise. We haven’t explicitly investigated how to cultivate wisdom or compassion in ourselves or our clients.

This intensive seminar will explore new ways in which recent scientific findings and techniques from ancient traditions can be harnessed to tap the true potential of mindfulness—to help our clients and ourselves to become wiser, more compassionate, and happier human beings.
