MBCL (Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living) is a mindfulness program developed in The Netherlands by Erik van den Brink and Frits Koster for graduates of MBSR, MBCT (and equivalent programs). Building upon the personal practice base established in the earlier mindfulness course, a deeper exploration is engaged to learn more how to deal in a healthy way with pain, stress or suffering, in whatever form it presents – physical, mental, emotional or relational. It is a way one can deepen the healing effects of mindfulness with the help of this program, which offers practices in cultivating compassion and kindness towards ourselves and others.
The course structure engages with themes about compassion, kindness, self-care, behavioural patterns, growing happiness, gratitude and weaving wisdom and presence into daily life. As a group we read chapters from the workbook, discuss topics, journal our experiences, practice insight dialogue and learn new forms of guided meditations.
NOTE: prerequisite of this course is past completion of an 8-week mindfulness course (ex. MBSR/MBCT or equivalent) and an ongoing regular personal practice. Personal interviews are required to discuss intentions and wishes for taking the course.
- 8 x Weekly Sessions (2.5 hours each) – program includes workbook, handouts and audio recordings.
- 4-Hour Session (Silent) included in the course curriculum (between week 6 & 7)
