Restorative by Nature: Mindful Compassion Practice (Group Therapy Sessions)

This semi-closed/semi-open group is designed to offer a supportive environment for you to connect with yourself, with others, and with nature, and to practice various mindfulness, compassion, self-compassion, stabilization, and resourcing practices in a structured, guided way within each session.

The mindful compassion practice group sessions are offered online, as well as in a hybrid format when weather and pandemic conditions permit. In the hybrid format, some participants join virtually via video alongside other participants who participate in-person on-site. (Currently, all on-site sessions are occurring outdoors.)

Sessions are 1 hour, 30 minutes in length. Participants are asked to bring a sketchbook to each session, along with some basic drawing/writing supplies (e.g.,. pen(s), pencil crayons, oil pastels and/or markers….). (more…)

Restorative by Nature: Mindful Compassion Group Therapy Program

The mindful compassion group therapy program is about learning how to listen to and to make friends with yourself: to meet yourself in whatever you are experiencing with understanding, patience, and support. It is about learning to notice and bring curiosity to your inner experiences and to develop compassionate ways to work with what arises inside—not limited to but including ways to work with the judging, self-criticizing, and/or shaming kinds of thoughts and the painful kinds of emotions you experience. The program is about helping you learn to approach and navigate your inner and outer experiences with compassion, wisdom, and courage. And it is also about helping you learn how to help your nervous system to feel a greater sense of safeness, calm, soothing, and/or ease.
