Radhule & Raab on Writing
Radhule Weininger, Ph.D., and Diana Raab, Ph.D., are teaming up once again to offer a three-hour training in Mindfulness Meditation and Journaling this weekend. Raab, a longtime Montecito-based memoirist, poet, essayist, blogger and speaker whose latest book is titled Writing for Bliss: A Seven-Step Plan for Telling Your Story and Transforming Your Life, and Weininger, a veteran Santa Barbara dwelling clinical psychologist, teacher of Buddhist meditation and Buddhist psychology and founder and guiding teacher of the One Dharma Sangha, will offer exercises for participants to learn to see their relationships clearly and with compassion: to oneself and others as well as the world. Weininger will address how to complement wisdom with heart practice, such as kindness and compassion, especially self-compassion, and how to use these practices as tools for introspection. Raab will guide a variety of journaling exercises to a deep and creative way of self-reflection.
The teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals – who can receive necessary CE credits – as well as the general public, while healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in the program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. The workshop takes place 1-4 pm on Sunday, February 23, at a private residence on Sycamore Canyon Road in Montecito. Admission is $60. Call (805) 694-8432 or visit www.mindfulheartprograms.org.
