Learn from Dr David Treleaven in insensitive residential format about ‘Windows of Resilience’.
Professional training to support yourself and others in theoretical and practical way.

In our own mindfulness practice and in supporting others, it is important to create an environment of safety and effective practice.

Perhaps there are people in your class who are struggling with trauma in a class that incorporates mindfulness, meditation or yoga.

What is the Window of Tolerance?

The window of tolerance is a concept pivotal to understanding how we navigate stress and trauma. It describes the optimal zone of arousal where we can function most effectively, managing and processing experiences with a balance of challenge and ease. Outside of this window, we may find ourselves overwhelmed (hyperarousal) or disconnected (hypoarousal). Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness practices offer tools to recognize and adjust our states, enabling us to remain within or return to this window of resilience and presence. You’ll come away from this workshop with more tools to navigate your own emotional landscape and to facilitate a safer, more supportive space for others.

Workshop Highlights:

  • Interactive Lectures: Gain insights into the foundational principles of trauma-sensitive mindfulness, understanding how trauma affects the mind and body, and the critical role of the window of tolerance in fostering emotional regulation and resilience.
  • Practice Sessions: Engage in guided mindfulness practices designed to expand your window of tolerance. Learn advanced techniques to support yourself and others in navigating the challenges of trauma with grace and effectiveness.
  • Dynamic Q&A Sessions: Have your questions answered directly by David and Angie. Benefit from their vast experience and knowledge, ensuring you leave with a clear understanding of how to apply these practices in your work and personal life.

Kenya Miyamoto

After graduating from university, I gained work experience in manufacturing, engineering companies, and think tanks. Currently, I am learning and teaching mindfulness (MBSR, MBCT, MBCL, MBPM, etc.), conducting MBSR teacher training programs in Japan, and organizing webinars with international instructors. At the same time, I am enrolled in a graduate program at Bangor University in the UK, where I am studying the practice and theoretical background of mindfulness. I am also exploring how mindfulness can extend beyond the individual to have a broader societal impact.

In addition to the curriculum-based learning in various training programs, I conduct MBSR teacher training, arrange webinars, and engage in dialogue with experienced international instructors. Through these interactions, I am continually seeking ways to enhance the impact of mindfulness for many people.

resort hoshihana started with a swimming pool that was donated to “Baan Rom Sai”, a facility for children adjacent to the hotel. The current resort hoshihana was born with the donation of the cottage so that the visitors can have more fun. The unique cottages are named by the backers who donated each cottage.

Ban Rom Sai was established in Chiangmai in 1999 as a living facility for orphans with mother-to-child transmission of HIV. However now it also supports 30 children who have been orphaned for various reasons and who cannot live with their parents. See here for details.
