Description

Do you value mindful living? If so, we hope we can see you at the upcoming meeting!


Hello Friends/Colleagues,

Hope you're doing well. We are excited to announce our next meeting which will be coming up this month on Monday March 18, 2019.

Research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress. Eileen and Rainer Beltzner have kindly agreed to lead our evening by sharing their experiences of delivering Mindful Self-Compassion training and how it can benefit ourselves and those around us.

MSC is an empirically supported, 8- session training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants kindness, care, and understanding.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone and provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcoming, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed and be more authentically ourselves. Please see their website for more information.

Eileen is both a Registered Social Worker and a Special Care Counsellor with over 40 years of clinical experience in both hospital and community settings. She is an author and a published researcher. She is recognized as a “Certified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher” through the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, Center for Mindfulness. Rainer Beltzner has accumulated over 40 years of business experience including 25 years as a senior audit and consulting partner and managing director with the international accounting, tax and audit firm of KPMG. He is recognized as a “Certified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher” through the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, Center for Mindfulness and as a "Certified Mindfulness Teacher" through the International Association of Mindfulness Teachers. Rainer has been teaching the formal MSC (Mindful Self-Compassion) program for the past five years and is currently on the faculty of the Toronto Centre for Mindfulness Studies as well as the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion.

For those of you who are new to the Mindfulness Halton/Peel Professionals' Community, these meetings are for members only, however you are welcome to come to check us out at no cost if it's your first visit. Otherwise, members pay an annual fee of $25 which covers the costs of the room rentals, small thank you gifts for the guest speakers and other nominal costs. We have a log of when people last paid their dues, just in case you're wondering whether it's time. We are a non-profit organization, volunteer-run and are a chapter under Mindfulness Ontario. Mindfulness Halton/Peel is not a training program for the public but is a group of professionals who are dedicated to bringing together like-minded professionals who practice Mindful Living both personally and professionally in some capacity. We meditate together, share relevant resources and support one another's intentions to continue to deepen our mindfulness practices and bring mindfulness into the community in a formal way. We are always open to your fresh, new ideas for our community as well!

Mindfulness Halton/Peel Professionals is a proud sponsor of the 5th annual A Mindful Society. Join 900+ attendees from 20+ countries interested in applying mindfulness to work and life. Learn about emerging programs, applications, and innovative research.
