Mindfulness and compassion–based interventions are used as prevention and/or treatment tools in various areas such as education, (mental) health, and organizations. This three-week summer programme provides an introduction to the interdisciplinary perspectives on mindfulness and compassion interventions, demonstrating different but interconnected elements including theoretical models of contemplative practices, neuropsychology, and spiritual roots of current secular practices. This three-week summer programme explores Emotion Regulation and contemplative practices such as mindfulness and compassion-based interventions from both first-person and third-person perspective. You will be able to explore the science behind contemplative practices (third-person perspective), while experiencing contemplative practices and applying them in your own daily life (first-person perspective). In this way you will be able to fill your own evidence-based health and wellness toolbox with some new strategies and habits.
