Join Sam Akers, (C-IATY, E-RYT500, MFRT, Certified Mindfulness Teacher/Trainer) for this 18 hr signature training that combines the foundations of mindfulness with a look into what compassion is and what it is not.
We have been hearing all about “compassion burnout” over the last 2 years but compassion, true compassion, has no burnout. You will learn about the features of compassion in this training and the difference between compassion, empathy, and empathetic distress (commonly misunderstood as compassion burnout).
Once we have a more clear understanding of compassion and its edge states, we then learn how to presence our own suffering and that of others, with wisdom, boundaries, and a capacity for loving-kindness we may not have thought possible.
The heart of the training is learning to practice and teach an Introduction to Mindfulness class as well as weave mindfulness into different professional settings.
This training is only for those who have completed a 200-hr yoga teacher training!
Mindfulness invites us to be open, spacious and to remember to be in this present moments' experience, which is the only moment in which we can truly live.
Training includes practice, lecture, partner teaching and small group teaching.
