Mindfulness Inside & Outside the Therapy Hour:
3 Day Intensive Training

July 15-17, Banff, Alberta, Canada
Sponsored by Jack Hirose & Associates

The Canadian Rockies are breathtakingly beautiful, and provide a wonderful environment in which to study and practice mindfulness meditation. In this three-day program, we'll explore mindfulness both conceptually and experientially, exploring its potential to enrich and enliven our personal and professional lives, as well as enhance virtually any form or psychotherapy. We'll examine how to adapt practices to clients or patients with a wide variety of difficulties, cultural backgrounds, and personality organization. This is high season in Banff, so if you might be interested in this program, please register and make your travel arrangements soon, and consider lingering in the area after the workshop!

CE’s are offered to physicians, psychologists, counselors/educators, nurses, social workers, and marriage and family therapists.

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness:
An Intensive Mindfulness Retreat for Mental Health Professionals
August 8-15, 2015, Taos, New Mexico
Sponsored by Vallecitos Mountain Ranch.

With Bill Morgan, Psy.D., and Susan Morgan, MSN, RN, CS and Ronald Siegel, Psy.D.

This week we will study and practice a core training element of Buddhist psychology, the Four Foundations of Mindfulness–body, feeling tones, mind and mental qualities. Applied mindfulness and compassion exercises relevant to each domain will be explored and practiced. This yearly course provides a container in which to explore these practices with colleagues. The teaching is experience-near, focusing on the development of mindfulness practice and its relevance in our work with others, particularly in the delivery of accurate empathy and therapeutic presence. There will be daily mindfulness meditation instruction and three to four hours of meditation each day, study modules most afternoons in combination with dyadic or small group discussion, and individual meetings with teachers.

The rest of the time we will observe silence, including during meals, to facilitate a deeper contemplative experience. This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in an exquisite natural environment and work closely with leaders in the growing field of clinical mindfulness meditation and compassion. Every effort will be made by the teachers and staff to give each participant a delightful, educational, retreat experience, so that you can return home with renewed enthusiasm for clinical work and for cultivating mindfulness and compassion in daily life. 

This retreat is limited to 30 participants. 20 CE credits available to psychologists, social workers and licensed mental health counselors.

The Nature of Mindfulness: Awakening The Senses in Paradise
January 23-30, 2016, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
A nature-lovers retreat

With Ronald Siegel, PsyD, Larry Cammarata, PhD, & Linda Cammarata, RN

From the Buddha’s earliest teaching to the wanderings of Zen masters, meditators have appreciated the power of nature to cultivate mindfulness and the understanding of interdependence.

This retreat will awaken your senses and enhance your awareness while surrounded by lush tropical jungle, wildlife, warm ocean waters, and pristine beaches. We’ll enjoy meditation, gentle mindful movement, clinical education, excursions into nature, and delicious cuisine, all within a beautiful eco-lodge in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, where sparkling ocean meets verdant jungle to provide a safe and nurturing container for our work and play.

This will be an intimate trip with ample opportunities to reflect on our experiences together as well as to explore their clinical implications.

Enrollment is limited.  19.5 CEs are offered for most psychologists, social workers, nurses, and licensed mental health counselors.
