Mindfulness Based Counseling : Listening with Embodied Presence

Offered by Just Being Center for Mindfulness and Presence, Pune, in collaboration with St. Mira's College for Girls, Pune, this one year part-time PG diploma is open to all who would like to offer a listening space to people with Mindfulness as a base. You don't need to have any specialized background for this, but just a willing heart to hold a listening space.

Mindfulness & Presence Oriented Psychotherapy (Integrating Compassion & Wisdom - A Non-Dual Approach)

Jointly offered by Just Being Center for Mindfulness and Presence, Pune & Centre for Lifelong Learning- Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, this two year part-time course constitutes a training in orientation – an orientation to Presence or 'beingness'. It also equips therapists with the required skills and attitude to deeply listen. This allows for deeper healing forces to emerge in psychotherapeutic contact and to facilitate the client’s movement towards a felt sense of wholeness that also deeply honours the human experience.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

'Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based group modality to prevent relapse of anxiety and mood disorders. It combines the tools of cognitive therapy with the practice of mindfulness meditation. The non-residential four day training is in line with international standards. It is the first step towards becoming a MBCT Facilitator. This training is recognized as a prerequisite to an international certification as an MBCT Facilitator through the Center for Mindfulness Studies, Toronto, Canada.

Focusing

Focusing as a specific method looks at a way of listening to the "felt sense" that emerges in the body-mind and developing an inner relationship from a place of Presence.
