5th July 2018 - Anthony FidlerMindfulness for Psychosis (expert by experiences)

Anthony will share his ideas on how simple mindfulness-based practices including mindful walking, standing meditation qi gong, simple yoga, sitting in stillness, group sharing with mindful listening and resonance based compassionate touch can function together as a transformational journey for people experiencing extreme emotional pain, trauma and psychosis. His work aims to gently bring people into a state of embodied mindfulness and compassionate connection with themselves and those around them. From this state, with the support of a group, He believes it can be possible to open up to and work with emotional pain which otherwise may be overwhelming. This will be an experiential day, but with time also for group discussion and questions and answers.

4th Oct. 2018 - Maya Campbell & Tamara Russell - Heartfulness tai chi, meditation, self-compassion workshop (master class)

The Heartfulness Project is an integrative mind-body training for individuals who have heart issues - emotional and/or physical. Designed initially for those suffering from physical heart conditions, or those at risk. Developed by Dr Maya Campbell, research scientist and mindfulness teacher and clinical psychologist Dr Tamara Russell, the course draws on the lived experience of Maya Campbell who had a heart attack leading to heart failure. Subsequently, she gave evidence at the All Party Parliamentary Select Committee on Heart Failure and argued for the need for greater psychological support for heart patients. Dr Tamara Russell, Director of the Mindfulness Centre of Excellence, brought her expertise in creative co-design of mindfulness programs to develop an innovative program which started from the experience of the participants.

Learning Objectives of the Workshop

1) Learn more about mindful co-design, integrative approaches

2) Understand how the practices activate and soothe from a neuroscience and physiological perspective

3) Learn how to “Get into the green” exploring a variety of self-soothing exercises

4) Have a solid tool to take away and implement immediately in your life


3rd Jan 2019 - Margaret Chapman-Clarke - mindfulness-based strengths practice (MBSP)

Mindfulness-based strengths practice (MBSP) is an integrative, informed approach where the wisdom of Eastern philosophy and Western Science of Positive Psychology converge. This convergence offers possibilities and potential and is an exciting prospect as an intervention for practitioners concerned with facilitating wellbeing and resilience.
Mindfulness is a quality of awareness that we bring to everyday living. It is a skill, an attitude, and a philosophy which enables us to direct our attention to what is important to us. Positive psychology meanwhile is concerned with the science of optimal human functioning, that offers a body of knowledge and toolkit of practices that enable us to flourish and thrive.
The intentions for offering this ‘primer’ are to:
• Explore where positive, strengths-based psychological approaches, emotional intelligence, mindfulness and self-compassion converge
• Consider the contributions of Ryan Niemiec (2014), the foremost proponent of mindfulness and character strengths and positive psychology and mindfulness researchers at UEL and LJMU are making to inform developments in the field and relevance to practice
• Look at how contemporary therapeutic approaches are incorporating mindfulness and positive psychology, such as gestalt (Gold & Zahm, 2018) and strengths-based CBT (Padeskey & Mooney, 2012) and how these inform my MBSP programmes
• Experience practices drawn from a range of different mindfulness-based interventions (MBI), and positive psychology that I use to identify and build client strengths
• Signposted to key readings and online resources that have served to inform the development of my approach to developing an integrative, informed MBI (Chapman-Clarke, 2016)

Margaret Chapman-Clarke is editor and author of Mindfulness in the Workplace: an evidence-based approach to improving wellbeing … (Chapman-Clarke, 2016) and written two practitioner texts: The Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness at Work Pocketbooks. In October 2018 I received an Emerald Publishing Literati Award for her paper, Why mindfulness at work matters – the ‘reboot’ for emotional intelligence development published in Development and Learning in Organizations: An International Journal, which as a result of this award is (for a limited time) downloadable from: https://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10.1108/DLO-10-2016-0097 . If interested, you can also download the pilot issue of The International Journal of Mindfulness and Compassion at Work (www.theijmc.com) for state-of-the-art work in these areas.
