Mindfulness & Metta (Lovingkindness) - Saturday, July 12, 9:00 to 1:00pm
LOCATION: SSIMC Home Location: 1130 Washington Street, Hanover MA 02339
With Madeline Klyne | This half-day will explore the practices of befriending ourselves, others and the present moment.  With mindfulness, we open to and recognize how we are relating to the present. With metta, we nourish our natural capacity for an open loving heart. Both mindfulness and metta practices increase our capacity to accept, appreciate and befriend our everyday experiences and ‘imperfections’ with a more open, peaceful, expansive heart and mind.

LOCATION: SSIMC Home Location: 1130 Washington Street, Hanover MA 02339
With Susan M. Pollak & Tom Pedulla | Today, more and more psychotherapists and their patients are interested in bringing the power of mindfulness into their clinical work. But how does one actually do that? This workshop shows the way. Drawing from their own clinical experience, as well as from their new book, the workshop leaders will introduce a variety of mindfulness practices that clinicians and their clients can use to develop the core skills of concentration, open monitoring, and compassionate acceptance. The day will include teaching, experiential exercises, and discussion. This program is appropriate for anyone with an interest in the integration of meditation and psychotherapy. Mental health professionals can earn 5 CE credits.

Susan M. Pollak, MTS, EdD, is a psychologist, a clinical instructor in psychology at Harvard Medical School, and the president of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy. She is also co-author of Sitting Together: Essential Skills for Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy.

Thomas Pedulla, LICSW, is a psychotherapist, a former board member at CIMC, and a faculty and board member at the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy. He is also co-author of Sitting Together: Essential Skills for Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy.
