Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living

Structure

The program consists of 8 sessions of 2 ½ hours which are given weekly or with longer intervals. Between the 6th and 7th session an extra silent session can be offered to deepen the practice. Participants commit themselves to set aside an hour daily for practice at home with the help of hand-outs and audio-cd’s. The structure thus reflects a basic mindfulness course.

Different from MBSR/MBCT there are more options to choose from as to which exercises participants can practise. We prefer to offer ‘suggestions for home practice’ rather than ‘home work’ in order to emphasize the importance to compassionately choose the exercises that connect best with the learning phase a particular participant has arrived at.


 

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

- Leonard Cohen -
