This eight week programme teaches about deepening your mindfulness with compassion. Devised By Erik van den Brink, Psychiatrist, and MBSR and MBST teacher trainer  and Frits Koster, Health Care professional, MBSR and MBCT Teacher Educator Editor of several books on Mindfulness. The Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living programme presents a way of learning how to face life's pressures by cultivating kindness and compassion – beginning with ourselves. Compassion involves both sensitivity to and awareness of our own and others’ suffering and the courage and strength to cope with it. Drawing on the work of experts in the field e.g  Paul Gilbert, Kristin Neff, Christopher Germer and Tara Brach, Erik van den Brink and Frits Koster have put together this  eight stage step-by-step compassion training programme, supported by practical exercises and  audio downloads and builds on basic mindfulness skills. Noreen Kelly has taken part in this programme both as a participant and has completed the teacher training programme delivered by Erik and Frits. As the programme is grounded in  ancient wisdom and modern science, it demonstrates how being compassionate shapes our minds, hearts and brains, and benefits our health and relationships. This training programme will be helpful to a wide variety of people struggling with the difficulties of modern life. Suitable also for those with various types of  mental health problems, and can be an effective tool in coping with low self-esteem or everyday inner struggles.
