A retreat is an opportunity to deepen the qualities and skills of the compassionate mind in a safe environment where the therapist experiences within himself the focus of Compassion Focused Therapy.
Personal Practice Retreat for CFT Therapists
We will soon organize - as soon as pandemic conditions allow - at least a 5-day retreat for professionals with CFT experience and training. The program will be based on the experiences of experiential retreats dedicated to the practice of Mindful Compassion (Gilbert y Choden, 2013), and in the ideas and practices of Compassionate Focused Therapy (Gilbert, 2014; Gilbert and Irons, 2005; Irons and Beaumont, 2017). During the five days we will focus on deepening and cultivating the qualities and skills of the compassionate mind, working in depth on self-criticism, difficult emotions and other challenging aspects of human life and the psychotherapy profession.
The retreat is designed for practitioners who have previously been on silent retreat or have training and experience in working with compassion. The retreat is based on experience and practice and focuses on the application of MIndful Compassion in relation to self-reflection and personal development, with the goal of facilitating growth and well-being at a deeper level.
