Knowing Me, Knowing You:
8 Mindful Steps to Heartfelt Relationships

Port Douglas, Australia | August 19 – 25 | 2011

Workshop 18 hours

Dr. James H. Bramson and Lyn Benson, Psychologist, invite you to join them in beautiful Port Douglas, Australia for a life and relationship-changing experience. This highly experiential workshop is limited to 20 participants and applies Buddhist principles, Attachment Theory and Neuroscience to understanding and healing relationships. Through the use of both didactic and experiential learning, small group practice, demonstrations, group process and audio visual tools, participants will understand the principles of loving and accepting “what is” in relationship, communication that blocks compassion, the benefits of acting with awareness and how to create a wider spectrum of consciousness and relationship empowerment. We will examine both the origins and impact of our own Attachment styles which can manifest in projections, fears and thought fusion and affect all of our relationships, including relationships with our clients.

The Great Barrier Reef is the workshops spectacular setting. It is the only place on the planet where two World Heritage sites meet, the worlds largest coral reef system and the Daintree Forest, the worlds oldest rainforest.

Optional trips to visit these incredible sites will be available to participants. To register and pay for the side trips please email Ricky Fishman [email protected]

At the completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

Summarize the basic principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and the relevance of ACT to Mindful Love in relationships
