Offered by Dr. Kimberly Sogge C.Psych. Certified MSC Teacher.

This 8 week group in Compassion Focused Therapy Level I: Compassionate Mind Training offers support for decreasing stress and reactivity and increasing psychological resources for living a life of meaning and joy. Stress and reactivity are major sources of suffering that conventional medicine has, at best, a mixed track record in treating. For thousands of years, global wisdom traditions have held that training the mind and cultivating compassion can be highly effective in helping people face their fears, and a growing body of scientific research supports that view. This 8 week group with a registered psychologist trained in “Compassion-Focused Therapy” draws from cutting-edge neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and Buddhist mindfulness methods to teach us innovative, evidence-based meditation, as well as visualization and cognitive re-framing techniques designed to increase our emotional strength and psychological flexibility. You will leave this 8 week group with an array of powerful new tools and healing perspectives that will permit you to move beyond stress and live with renewed meaning, purpose, and vitality.
