Most of our stress arises in contacts and communication, where emotions and patterns are easily set off, and where it is often challenging to maintain the calm and insights from the individual meditation practice. The Interpersonal mindfulness program (IMP) helps to cultivate greater awareness, calm and wisdom in contacts and relationships.
Each week, the session will include silent meditation, contemplation on a theme, as well as Insight Dialogue practice. Throughout, individual practice will be alternated with practice in dyads and small groups. This format actually works well online! The program includes home practices yo support you between the sessions.
This training welcomes people with meditation experience, for instance graduates from the MBSR or MBCT programs (8-week mindfulnesstraining). As IMP supports wisdom and inner calm in relationships, participants working with people, for instance as a teacher, coach, therapist or otherwise, might find the program especially helpful.
The sessions will be guided in English, with a possibility to practice in other languages during the practices in dyads. The program is offered via an online platform - all you need is a good internet connection and a working camera. You will receive a link to connect before the start.
