Topic: Mindfulness – Willingness and Wise Mind pt. 1

Mindfulness as a skill and a process is the foundation for somatic trauma work and all experiential therapies.

Part one looks at the common factors among experiential and somatic therapies to help you feel grounded in the core principles while flexible in the process.

Part two will take more time to explore the tools and interventions that can help develop mindfulness in session.

Some questions to contemplate in advance of the meeting might be:

  • Do I use mindfulness in therapy? How? When? What do I think it helps with?
  • Are there times when I feel really stuck in the “story” or in a loop with a client?
  • What’s it like when I feel disconnected in a session?
  • Have I struggled with talking about acceptance, or felt that acceptance or compassion don’t feel like enough?
