SEPTEMBER 08-10, 2017 DRONGEN, BELGIUM
We live in a world in which we increasingly have to deal with social problems, to reach out to migrants and refugees, and those traumatised by war. This requires what we might call heartfulness – a reaching out to the other, not merely achieving calm and a stress free state in oneself.
The nexus of the coming conference is about how we face the challenge to reach out to a turbulent, changing world from the place of deep compassion.
The organisers of the conference say: "The theme is not narrowly about psychotherapy or Buddhism or mindfulness but is directed towards exploring the creative interplay between all these fields and reaching beyond them. We have an exciting list of speakers from a range of disciplines, including Buddhist teachers, psychotherapists, fascia therapists and other practioners, as well as mindfulness facilitators. ITZI is at the forefront of exploring the field of compassionate action through therapeutic practice and engaged Buddhism."
Workshop themes include:
The Body as the way to Heartfulness - Paul Sercu
Mindfulness without Heartfulness is not Mindfulness - Edel Maex
Cultivating Compassion based Care - Irene Bakker
My Path from Common to Buddhist Therapist - Xavier Vandeputte
