Clinicians who work with mindfulness-based interventions are highly recommended to attend retreats to deepen their own practice and understanding of meditation-based therapy. Last weekend a small group of MiCBT clinicians met for an annual peer-led retreat. We spent three days in silent meditations with a few sessions of discussions about implementing MiCBT with a range of different client presentations. We also spend some time discussing our own meditation practice. So we are now refreshed and ready to support our clients through the next challenging part of the year.
The Melbourne Mindfulness Institute provides mindfulness training in a range of contexts enabling people to apply a mindfulness-based approach to daily life while improving their sense of well-being. Our approach uses Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT).
