Mindfulness and Dialogue for Life is a process of creative interaction that consists of connecting, exploring and discovering. It is designed for everyone including therapists, counselors, nurses, social workers, teachers, physicians, clergy, and social service staff. Diane and Danny will introduce you to the practices of Mindfulness and Dialogue for Life that will enable you to use brief meditation practices and dialogue skills to enhance your ability to befriend yourself and improve your interactions with friends, family, clients, patients, and co-workers.
With Mindfulness, you will learn to increase your ability to deal with stress by being more present, to more fully understand patterns of thought, and to allow appropriate space for emotions as they arise. There will be time to learn gentle yoga movements that will complement this comprehensive approach.
