Loving Kindness Workshop: A Compassionate Christmas

Is Christmas a difficult time of year for you?

Would you like to find ways to navigate Christmas with self-compassion? 

Christmas can be an emotional time, often of joy and celebration, but also giving rise to emotions like sadness and loneliness. This workshop acknowledges the difficulties of the Christmas season as well as its pleasures, and will explore ways that you can nurture and care for yourself during what can sometimes be a difficult time of year. We’ll also explore ways that you can be more open to the joys of the season, in particular the connections with other people. With led meditations, reflections and discussion, the workshop will have the Loving Kindness meditation at its core as a way of approaching Christmas with open hearts.

When: Sunday 8 December 2019, 10am - 2pm
Where: Oscailt Health Centre, 8 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4

"I thought the course uses very simple means to feel connected to the outer world, e.g. looking people in the eye and being comfortable, and simple tokens of gratitude and how good you feel afterwards. I also liked Fidelma’s demeanour – very calm and kind, which in itself projects into the class and encouraged me to be more calm in general."

One-to-One Loving Kindness sessions

Loving Kindness classes are also available on an individual basis, either in person or by phone or on-line. 

"The course gave me self-focus, empowerment, the ability to stay in the present and to slow down thought processes….Breathing and the power of using it and developing it to improve quality in the day-to-day course of life. The course was perfect for me, very easy and gentle and non-intrusive."

Loving Kindness: Living with Kindness Course 
While we all have the capacity to live from our hearts and to be a loving presence in the world, this is often undermined by the barriers we put up to protect ourselves. This workshop will teach the Loving Kindness meditation practice, which develops the ability to connect to your heart, by bringing a gentle, kindly awareness to your emotional responses to yourself and others. We will also explore other ways of bringing loving kindness into your everyday life, by simple practices that develop positive emotions such as gratitude, generosity and compassion. 
Suitable both for beginners to meditation and for more experienced meditators.
Facilitated by Fidelma Farley.
