Dette kurset arrangeres av NoSeMi – Norsk Senter for Mindfulness

Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living (MBCL) is a training program developed by Frits Koster and Erik van den Brink for those who wish to learn how to deal in a healthy way with pain, stress or suffering, in whatever form it presents – physical, mental, emotional or relational. Those already familiar with mindfulness practice can deepen the healing effects of mindfulness with the help of this program, which offers exercises in cultivating compassion for ourselves and others.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will have experienced the main exercises of the MBCL programme as a first step to understand their meaning for their personal and professional lives.
  • Participants will have a basic understanding of the content, the main themes and scientific background of the MBCL programme.
  • Participants will have a basis to further cultivate and deepen (self-) compassion practice for personal and professional benefit and continue with MBCL Teacher Training seminars, if they wish so.
