This course in Mindful Presence allows participants to experience deeper self-awareness of mind, body, and spirit. An embodied Mindfulness Presence enables participants to make a deeper and a more genuine contact with themselves and being more authentically available to their clients. This course provides a safe and supportive environment for self-exploration, change and approaching practice in a new way of being. This is achieved through experiential mindfulness meditation activities. The premise of this course is that Mindful Presence is not a theory, method or technique to be added to social work as part of the practice. Rather, it is the context that inform practice with clients: It is the social worker’s way of being with clients in social work practice.
