The Power of Mindfulness to Radically Change Relationships

 

Self-criticism and insecurity can be toxic to relationships

Shame

Left to fester, these feelings can feed into a life-long trance of unworthiness . . .

. . . that can overshadow every relationship our clients have.

When they are caught in this trance of unworthiness . . .

. . . clients can develop debilitating brain patterns that not only perpetuate their feelings of inadequacy, but actually harm their health.

This destructive cycle is painful.

It keeps people shutdown, distant from others, and unable to experience the openness, warmth, and support of healthy, restored relationships.

But research has shown that mindfulness can literally change the structure of the brain, and enable us to build healthy, supportive relationships

Even 15 minutes of mindfulness practice a day can begin to unlock the barriers that keep our clients from connecting on a meaningful level.

It can help them overcome feelings of unworthiness and grow more open to love, trust, and compassion.

As patterns of reactivity, judgment, and defensiveness begin to dissolve, our clients can start to experience a richness in their relationships that they’ve never felt before.

They can uncover a greater sense of connection and closeness, and feel more known, accepted, and understood.

It’s a journey of coming home to ourselves . . .

The simple practice of mindfulness can free us from the paralyzing grip of self-judgment, shame, and inadequacy.

It can open our hearts to a deeper experience of love and compassion.

That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create a program on the power of mindfulness to transform relationships.

What makes this program right for YOU?

We've talked with plenty of people who want to make mindfulness part of their lives, as well as something they can use with clients.

But for many people, there's a huge gap between knowledge and practice. They understand the principles and theories, but are looking for someone who can offer interactive "hands-on" practice.

That's one reason this program is so valuable. Tara will not only equip you with key teachings about mindfulness . . .

. . . she’ll also walk you through practical, life-changing mindfulness exercises.

Whether you're an expert in mindfulness, or haven’t practiced in a while, or this is something you’re exploring for the first time . . .

. . . these rich lessons will help you begin to experience the transforming power of mindfulness practice. Tara will guide you through meditation exercises, so if you've never meditated before, you'll be amazed at how simple and effective it is.

And if you're an experienced student of mindfulness, you'll find that your toolkit expands with the lessons in this course. You'll go deeper into the questions that matter most.

Become part of a community . . .

When you join the thousands of other practitioners taking this program, you aren't just getting hours of hands-on mindfulness training.

You're joining a community of learners. You’ll be able to share your experiences with like-minded learners, get expert input, and hear how others have tackled the same problems you’re facing.

That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create a program on the power of mindfulness to transform relationships.

Mindfulness can transform the brain

A few years back, the research was just getting started - evidence was anecdotal, and there was no way of knowing for sure if mindfulness practice was truly making the difference that so many were reporting.

However, we now know that mindfulness practice:

  • Increases the brain waves associated with neural integration and well-being
  • Leads to an increased sense of well-being, not to mention greater stress resilience and deeper empathy in both professional and personal relationships
  • Improves attention, learning, and memory
  • Reduces experiences of pain, including chronic pain
  • Correlates with reduced feelings of burnout and increased stress resilience
  • Decreases the frequency and severity of stress, and the symptoms that come with it, including IBS, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction

Why the Transcript Is Essential:

transcript sample

  • The transcript makes it easy to go back and double check concepts, citations and names that are mentioned
  • We put in a table of contents to make it easy for you to find the exact part of the session you need
  • Having the concepts already written allows you to take notes on how you’re going to use the ideas rather than transcribing the ideas
  • Some people simply learn better by reading than by listening or watching
  • You will be able to print out and share techniques presented in the session with your patients
Angela Lawrence

"I really liked being able to follow along with the transcripts as I listened...it was nice not to feel like I had to take notes. I really feel like I remember more when I both hear and see at the same time."

Mary Ellen McNaughton, Masters in Counseling, Psychology Counselor
Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada
