Jillayne Sorenson, Psy.D. RYT 200
The Heart of Resilience is a 14-hour course for students who have completed the Foundations in Mindfulness or MBSR class. This course expands on core mindfulness skills to include additional content and practice focusing on the science of emotions, building resilience, and exploring the research and practice of forgiveness and compassion practices.
Mindfulness, Emotion and Compassion-in-Practice What do current science and the ancient practices of mindfulness teach us about emotions, resilience and the value of cultivating compassion, gratitude and forgiveness?
How can we integrate these “heart practices” to expand our perspective and foster connection?
This 5-week course builds on the core mindfulness practices of MBSR to explore the science behind emotion and resilience, with a focus on the practice of compassion, gratitude and forgiveness as a path of renewal in times of challenge and change.
Class Format: This course meets for five, 2-hour sessions and one half-day retreat (4 hours). Each session includes research-based learning, discussion, and experiential practice that builds on foundational mindfulness skills to include cultivating kindness & gratitude, mindful forgiveness and compassion for self and others. Guided MP3 recordings are provided to support practice between sessions along with a workbook and online resources.
