About the Event

 

 Drop-In Meditation Session: Widening Our Circle of Compassion

 taught by Diane Hetrick

Tuesday, August 2, 6:00 - 7:00 pm 

 

CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.

 

Please note: June - August we will have two meditation sessions per month. Starting in September, each session is on the first Tuesday of the month.

 

About the Session 

Although we all experience biases towards and against other people, these biases are not fixed. By cultivating the practice of embracing our shared humanity and developing an appreciation for others, we can broaden our empathy and compassion to wider and wider circles of people.  Current research by Drs. Richie Davidson, Barbara Fredrickson, and others shows that practicing loving kindness towards others can be of physiological benefit for oneself, increase our sense of social connectedness, and the benefits can be experienced in a relatively short amount of time. Join us for this drop-in session to experience the practice of embracing our common humanity and developing an appreciation of others.

 

 

About the Instructor

Diane Hetrick has been studying and practicing in the areas of mind-body healing, mindfulness, meditation, and compassion cultivation most of her adult life. Her more than 30 years of experience as a Physical Therapist working with patients with chronic pain and/or illnesses lead her to explore various body and movement practices, including yoga, dance and qigong, and to explore the area of Mindfulness meditation, in order to help people with stress, pain or dysfunction find more ease, and well-being in their lives.

 

She completed the Certificate in Mindfulness Facilitation training through the Mindfulness Awareness Research Center (MARC) at UCLA. After completing the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Teacher Certification Program, offered through the Center for Compassion, Altruism, Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford, she became one of the first certified CCT teachers in the Seattle areaMore at: http://www.dianehetrick.com/
