Mindfulness is about being present and aware. Interpersonal mindful awareness is being present and aware of what is happening inside, (mind, heart and body), aware of what is happening around, (environmental context) and aware of what is happening between us and others, (direct interpersonal field).
In developing mindfulness we are growing our ability to be more present in our internal experience. When we are mindful, we are more attuned to ourselves and others. We grow our capacity to respond with greater agency and skill.

Jaye and JacquieThe field of cognitive neuroscience firmly supports our intuition that we humans come pre-wired for social connection. Close contact with others is our greatest longing but it also brings us into close contact with parts ourselves that have been wounded. Our difficulty in the inter-personal world is that we are often emotionally triggered. Un-metabolized traumas frustrate our desire and ability to be present and connect. This is especially so when are caught in difficult encounters.

The path to interpersonal mindful awareness begins with the recognition that each of us possesses the ability observe our minds in action. In order to observe what our minds are thinking, we quiet the mind and body through meditation, investigating what calls our attention. We explore our narratives and recognize patterns that live in our bodies. We can offset narratives which are excessively critical and judgmental by cultivating compassion. This helps us to open to our narratives with curiosity and compassion instead of contempt and judgment. This attitude of caring attention creates safety for consciousness and is the gateway to intimate connections.
In this workshop we will learn skills to respond and attend to our internal narratives as well as the difficult emotions that often arise in the inter-personal world. The practices of “pausing”, “active investigation” and “compassionate presence” will be taught and demonstrated.

This will be a highly experiential program, utilizing group and dyad interaction as well as action exploration, (including role play and role reversal). While this day is designed for therapists or mental health practitioners who are interested in integrating mindful awareness, meditation, and compassion practices within their therapeutic work, it is also open for anyone who wants to explore relational mindfulness! These practices are resources that foster support, stability and presence. They cultivate spontaneity and resilience. They are applicable to any clinical style or orientation.

The psychodrama master class was excellent. The teacher was wonderful; the class size was perfect." "The most valuable session I attended was Jaye Moyer's "Active Compassion: Mindfulness in Psychodrama & Group Process." The session was very small (8 participants) and was tremendous as a self-care and re-centering exercise. I have no training in psychodrama, but the experience was very powerful." "Very therapeutic!...excited to roll out with clients &...

The value I receive from attendance in the workshops transcends both personal and professional space. Learning the techniques of deep reflection requires the time to pause, reflect—and discover. Moving from internal reflection to integration and then external action, requires a different set of tools—and practice, practice, practice! The ability to learn these techniques in a mutually-supportive environment with talented and knowledgeable guides and mentors is a...

The first time I stepped into the Labyrinth I was very naive to the journey I was about to take. I had no expectation, but stepped gingerly, not sure how many walls I would bump into and bounce off of along my way. I had never experienced psychodrama before and am grateful to the women I journeyed with who gently held my hand and guided me. I was unprepared for the raw emotion and the profound learning, and thankful for the incredibly safe and loving environment Jaye...

I had the pleasure of participating in the mindfulness group presented by Jacqueline Siroka and Jaye Moyer. As a meditator with experience in several mindfulness-based programs, I found this format especially enriching and meaningful. Each session provided a new framework for applying mindfulness and compassion to one's life while offering a safe, supportive environment to question how these skills support our personal well-being. The opportunity to connect with other...

I attended your session, "Releasing Personal And Interpersonal Wounds Through Forgiveness," was quite please and inspired by your presentation and process. I appreciated your series of warm ups, allowing us to choose mantras, and warming us up to how each of us may have harmed others, been harmed by them, or by ourselves. I was struck by how this process would be welcomed and easily could be adapted and applied to some church groups with which I am associated. Because of...
