In this short retreat, we will use mindfulness practices to explore how we care for thoughts, emotions and feelings that are uncomfortable: especially emotions that involve anger, fear, shame and a wish to hurt. These emotions (which used to be called the ‘afflictive’ emotions) are challenging for all of us; but perhaps especially for those of us in the caring professions; who are trained to respond to others with empathy, and compassion, and to provide containment for other’s painful emotions. But these emotions are part of human life, and caring for them in ourselves is a crucial skill, and mindfulness practices can contribute to a sense of skilfulness. Includes group discussions, mindfulness practices of various sorts and time for relaxation. Suitable for those who are new to mindfulness practice or those with experience.
