Where most forms of mindfulness focus on the breath and other bodily sensations, emotion-focused mindfulness therapy (EFMT) emphasizes mindfulness of embodied emotional experiencing. Rather than feeling better, the emphasis is on getting better at feeling, so that our feelings help us better navigate our lives.
Dates: August 23-August 26 2018
Instructor: Bill Gayner, BSW, MSW, RSW,
