The MSPI Mindful Psychotherapy 6-day skills-based workshop trains participants in how to clinically apply and teach mindfulness meditation in psychotherapy, using an emotion-focused mindfulness therapy approach that emphasizes therapeutic presence and empathic following and responding to emotions as adaptive resources in meditation and therapeutic encounters with clients. Emotion-focused mindfulness therapy integrates emotion-focused therapy with emerging secular Buddhist perspectives and meditation practice to enhance the ability of clinical mindfulness to deepen experiencing, transform deeply conditioned maladaptive emotional patterns, and cultivate human flourishing. The approach provides a particularly coherent way for people to be introduced to mindfulness and to be supported in developing mature mindfulness practices in clinical and professional training contexts. Rather than feeling better, the emphasis is on getting better at feeling, so that our feelings help us better navigate our lives.
