The Nature of Mindfulness: Awakening The Senses in Paradise
January 17-24, 2015, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
A nature-lovers retreat with Ronald Siegel, PsyD

 
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.

The Power of Mindfulness: Inside & Outside The Therapy Hour
November 14-15, 2014, Raleigh, NC
January 29-30, 2015, Atlanta, GA
Sponsored by the Institute for the Advancement of Human Behavior

Day One: Mindfulness for Personal and Interpersonal Fulfillment is designed to help you to understand mindfulness practice theoretically and experientially and see how it can enrich and enliven your life both inside and outside of the therapy hour. We will explore how mindfulness practice can help us to deal with an ever-changing, uncertain world filled with complicated interpersonal relationships, and investigate the role of mindfulness in working with loneliness, alienation, illness and loss. You’ll gain insights from both scientific and Buddhist Psychology into paths and obstacles to greater well-being.

Day Two: Mindfulness-Based Clinical Interventions will focus on the integration of mindfulness practice into psychotherapy. First we'll examine how mindfulness practice can enhance therapeutic presence and transform understanding of the causes of psychological suffering. We will then discuss when and how to introduce various mindfulness techniques to our clients or patients. Special techniques for treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders and childhood distress will be introduced.

12 CE’s are offered to psychologists, social workers, nurses, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed mental health counselors.
