AUNE Mindfulness Workshop Recently Held

Antioch University New England recently held a workshop entitled, “The Practice of Compassion: Changing the World and Healing Ourselves.” The experiential seminar was aimed at mental health professionals, community activists, and other people who are trying to make the world a better place. Participants learned mindfulness-based practices to develop self-compassion, heal emotional pain, improve our ability to connect with others, and promote harmony in our organizations. The day included guided meditations, lecture, group discussions, and dyad exercises.

The workshop was led by AUNE Faculty Scholar Tim Desmond, LMFT. Tim is a practicing psychotherapist, author, and student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. He currently serves as a Faculty Scholar in the Applied Psychology Department at Antioch University New England and is co-founder of Morning Sun Meditation Center in Alstead, New Hampshire.
