18 CPD hours of professional development for health practitioners

NOTE: This workshop is suitable for ANYONE (not limited to health professionals)

This workshop will help to facilitate participants with cultivating their potential for a compassionate mind with personal practice. It will give people direct experience of mindfulness and compassion practices drawn from a synthesis of Western therapeutic and Buddhist approaches. Integrating mindfulness into the practice of compassion, we will find a step-by-step approach to cultivating the inner compassionate self.

By creating a stable base through mindfulness practices of soothing breathing and grounding, we will build on this by establishing a warm and receptive inner environment through working with voice tone, facial expressions, and wise acceptance of our changing emotions. We also work with our bodies to show how certain systems, such as the vagal parasympathetic system, can be linked to and cultivated by compassion practice.

Through conscious identification with qualities of strength, wisdom and commitment we learn to embody the compassionate self. From this place we are then in a position to relate compassionately to the parts of ourselves that struggle, and to broaden our compassion to other people in our lives. In this way we will experience the healing qualities that come from a stable and compassionate mind and develop new and transformative ways of being with our self and other people.


These workshops provide a great opportunity to learn from the founder Prof Paul Gilbert, who has travelled from the UK to provide this training opportunity in Brisbane with Dr James Kirby. CFT is an innovative therapy which has become increasingly popular amongst a range of health professionals.  CFT was originally developed for clients with high-levels of self-criticism and shame and has a growing evidence-base for a variety of clinical disorders and presentations, including with depression, anxiety, as well as complex trauma, PTSD, and psychosis. Practicing compassion has been shown to have powerful effects on physiological, psychological and social processes.
