Workshop with Dr Chris Walsh

Mindfulness meditation is now receiving scientific validation as an adjunct to conventional psychological and medical therapies. With mindfulness, we move from being buffeted by the turmoil of our thoughts, feelings and urges to calmly watching the stream of consciousness going by.

In recent years, mindfulness has become a well-known tool to counter the incessant stress of modern life. This workshop offers a fantastic opportunity for you to deepen your knowledge of how to apply mindfulness to your daily life.

The workshop is run by Dr Chris Walsh a mindfulness practitioner for over 20 years. Dr Walsh (MBBS, DPM, FAChAM) is a respected psychiatrist, who practices at the Melbourne Clinic and Epworth Hospitals, and provides clinical supervision to other mindfulness practitioners and teachers.

He also has an international reputation having presented workshops in USA, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, Singapore and Japan.

He will be presenting a workshop in Ballarat on Sunday 12 August 2018 that will provide participants with techniques they can use in their everyday lives. He will work through:

the mindful check-in
thought labelling
mindfully sitting with an emotion.

Dr Walsh says: "Through mindfulness, we can become more aware of our emotions and the processes that distort them. Then we become better able to manage them".

"Most of us have experienced times when our emotions have betrayed us. We can find ourselves getting upset for trivial reasons that don't seem to make sense. If we are unaware of an emotional state, we react in an automatic-pilot way," he said.

This workshop will help you understand the process of mindfully tuning into your emotions and letting go of distortions so that your emotions can function adaptively.

Dr Walsh works with small groups of people in a non-confrontational way, making them feel confident about their unique qualities and character and using this information to help them reflect on their personal limitations, without being judgmental.

To help with your interpersonal interactions there will be an emphasis on practising these techniques in social settings.

This exceptional and beneficial session is brought to by the Chris Millar Foundation for Integrative Medicine.

One of the foundation's aims is to sponsor speakers and events to promote integrative medicine to medical practitioners and the general public. The proceeds from this workshop will go to the Foundation. The session is as follows:
