See below for more information. Learning Objectives for participating health care professionals- The perspective from this program will support therapists and health care professionals in working with their clients by helping them and their clients:

  • Distinguish when the mind is addicted to “doing for transformation/change” in contrast to mindful participation in, and allowing of, a process of development. Recognizing the impotence of “doing” can evoke all kinds of resistances, structures, and feelings of inadequacy;
  • Utilize mindfulness practices to help clients identify the “gap” between awareness and doing, as a support for inviting deeper realization and transformation. When we recognize the gap between our awakening and its expression in our life, we appreciate the importance of transformation;
  • Incorporate the practice of presence into the work with clients to help them develop an awareness of the process of realization and transformation.
