Mindfulness, Compassion, and Difficult Emotions
with Susan Carol Stone, Ph.D.
April 20 - 22, 2018
In this interactive workshop-retreat, we will explore how to traverse the terrain of difficult emotions through mindfulness, presence, and compassion.
Popular mindfulness instructor Susan Carol Stone will assist you in establishing a personal mindfulness program that will help you relax into the present moment and relate to difficult emotions from a new perspective. You’ll understand why it is essential to approach challenging emotions with compassion.
This program is suitable for novice and experienced practitioners. An ability to be present to your difficult emotions as they arise is prerequisite to enrollment. These practices are a powerful complement to therapy work.
Silence outside of class sessions is encouraged.
Amazing program! Susan exceeded my expectations and helped me in ways I didn’t’ even know I needed help.
Susan was an amazing facilitator and balanced structured, hands-on activities with the right amount of discussion.
Dr. Stone is wonderful, prepared, down-to-earth, and understanding.
