In just two days (6 hours each), this dynamic and interactive weekend program will introduce you to different ways to work with the overwhelm — and even demoralization — we often feel when we just don’t know how to be helpful anymore…
Of course. We all feel that way.
Between the environment, politics, social discord, cultural fractures, economic chaos… Not to mention trying to help even one other person in our personal or professional life…
It can all feel beyond our abilities.
It’s often the case that even ‘highly trained,’ educated and dedicated people approach trying to help from the wrong direction. And this leads to Helper Burnout.
This workshop uses the approach presented in The Five Keys to Mindful Communication. Retired Marriage and Family Therapist and senior Buddhist teacher Susan Gillis Chapman developed this unique material by combining traditional wisdom teachings from Tibet and India with a modern Western psychological orientation towards relationship, intimacy and community.
This deep-but-simple approach — which applies especially when we’re trying to be of help to others — can allow you to more quickly and easily manage your overwhelm with changing emotional dynamics. It will give you an understanding of how your own mindfulness is the foundation for more truthful, compassionate, and flexible relationships with those you’re working with — and those you’re helping.
And that means you can be both:
Each day will begin at
7am San Francisco/10am New York/4pm Amsterdam
Each day will end at
2pm San Francisco/5pm New York/11pm Amsterdam
There will be 90min of full breaks, plus a few other short “stretch breaks.”
|Those You're Working With Will Feel||You Will Feel|
|More relaxed and natural||More relaxed and natural|
|That you’re more present||That you’re more present|
|That you’re more compassionate||That you’re more compassionate|
|Deeply listened to||A better sense of timing|
|More trust in your intuition||More willing to take a risk|
In this sample clip from a live webinar, teacher Greg Heffron uses one of the core models you’ll encounter in this Reset Weekend.
Greg is the Executive Director of the Green Zone Institute and teaches Mindful Communication throughout North America and Europe.
“Through the years, I have been privileged to witness how effective Mindful Communication is — whether I’m teaching basic mindfulness to newcomers, or diving deep with advanced meditators and those in the helping professions. Everyone benefits.“
In addition to an array of introductory courses, Greg has developed and teaches Green Zone Institute’s Advanced Certification and Teacher Training courses across three continents, and in countries with cultures as diverse as Ukraine, Canada, Austria, Chile, United States, Switzerland, Poland and Holland.
“For me, it has been humbling and inspiring teaching across cultures, feeling each person’s uniqueness and our shared humanity. Regardless of who we are, we ALL struggle with disconnection, and we ALL long to feel connected.“
“In my own life, I have experienced a groundswell in my capacity to navigate life’s communication challenges, and feel more and more connected to myself — and to humanity as a whole.”
Esther Hasselman is a certified mindfulness trainer (MBSR/MBCT), (self)compassion trainer (MBCL/MSC), and yoga teacher (DRU). Her path of coming home to herself and opening her heart has led her to her “natural communication system.” In the last few years, she specialized in mindfulness in relationship and in communication. She has a deep, experiential understanding of the processes of connecting and disconnecting, both in 1-on-1 relationships and in groups. She teaches Deep Listening and Mindful Communication, and leads practice groups in these disciplines.
Esther has been working in business services since 2010. From there she has built her own training and coaching practice. She works both online and offline, both directly with the Green Zone Institute and privately.
