Experience Zen as a Lifestyle – Jill White-Huffman

September 21 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Experience Zen as a Lifestyle; A Path Toward Mindful Self-Care

Course Description

AS MASSAGE AND BODYWORK THERAPISTS, much of our energy is exerted on others’ physical maintenance. Too often, we neglect to focus on our self-preservation. Having a healthy individual routine is critical to avoiding the effects of stress, burnout, transference, countertransference, compassion fatigue, and chronic pain symptoms in our care for others.

If we engage in self-care mindfulness practices daily, we will benefit most by developing skills that help us better manage our needs, avoid overextending ourselves to others, and create a work/life balance.

Practicing Mindful Self-Care through Zen Practice is meticulous behavior that helps us hone in on the little details. This term combines the consciousness of mindfulness with the intrinsic commitment to self-care. It teaches us how to ascend into our most refined self (through Zen) and maintain that ascension (through Mindful Self-Care). Zen is the construct; Mindful Self-Care is the maintenance, and this requires that we train our minds daily using healthy home self-care mindful practices, just like we develop a plan to train our bodies!

Jill White-Huffman combines her Mindful Self-Care curriculum with the teachings of Zen to bring you Experience Zen as a Lifestyle. This path towards mindful self-care guides individuals into healthier well-being by teaching them how to prevent or reduce stress/burnout through mindfulness.

It goes without saying that you must take care of yourself before you can take care of others.
