 Drop-In Meditation Session: Finding Balance in Giving & Receiving Compassion

 taught by Diane Hetrick

Monday, May 8, 2017, 6:00 - 7:00 pm 

 

CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.

 

About the Session 

We'll explore the flows of compassion: to others, from others and giving and receiving it from ourselves (self-compassion). When these are out of balance, often we feel depleted, burnt out, or disconnected from others. Diane will guide us to explore our barriers or fears to giving and receiving compassion, and offer some tools and guided meditation practices to support our natural flow of compassion so we feel nourished and connected in our lives. 

 

About the Instructor

Diane Hetrick has been studying and practicing in the areas of mind-body healing, mindfulness, meditation, and compassion cultivation most of her adult life. Her more than 30 years of experience as a Physical Therapist working with patients with chronic pain and/or illnesses lead her to explore various body and movement practices, including yoga, dance and qigong, and to explore the area of Mindfulness meditation, in order to help people with stress, pain or dysfunction find more ease, and well-being in their lives.

 

She completed the Certificate in Mindfulness Facilitation training through the Mindfulness Awareness Research Center (MARC) at UCLA. After completing the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Teacher Certification Program, offered through the Center for Compassion, Altruism, Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford, she became one of the first certified CCT teachers in the Seattle areaMore at: http://www.dianehetrick.com/
