Course in The Art of Helping and Caring for Yourself (I)

Learn to meditate and take care of yourself

LThe purpose of this workshop is to experientially teach a structured process to develop the potential for help and improvement we all have. Module I of The Art of Helping and Taking Care of Yourself program focuses on the intrapersonal or internal experience field.

Although this first module is a unit in itself that affects a specific area and can be carried out separately, it is advisable to also take Module II (balance and harmony in relationships and with our reality) since they complement and reinforce each other's effectiveness.

For this, we will use an integrative approach that works on three complementary and necessary areas:

  • 1. Developing the potential to harmonize with our internal experience (mindfulness),
  • 2. Developing the potential to harmonize with others (attitudes and values),
  • 3. Developing the potential to harmonize with reality (interdependence and wisdom).

We will use various cognitive, experiential and introspective methods and techniques for this.

Structured and experiential workshop

This course is organized in two modules (mindfulness, attitudes and values). Based on a practical and ancient method, replicated and demonstrated by many meditators that, in a structured way, develops the three areas discussed in the previous point. From your own experience, wherever you are, the method will facilitate to develop this potential and its application to your personal and professional life.

Quality course

Taught by professors with long experience in meditation and introspective techniques. Usually, mindfulness workshops work on the acceptance of internal experience, which is a very important aspect.


The other two areas (relational-attitudinal and authentic knowledge) are also worked on in this workshop.


  • Promote personal growth.
  • Quality helpful relational practice, through the development of mindfulness, calmness of mind, self-awareness, awareness of sensations, thoughts and emotions.


At the end of the course, the student will have acquired the knowledge and skills to:

  • 1. Teach the practice of meditation methods (such as mindfulness) to develop mindfulness, concentration and calmness of mind, in order to promote a more conscious and balanced life.
  • 2. Be ever more aware of the functioning of the "mind" (thoughts-emotions) to "stop" being on autopilot and be more present, promoting both personal and professional development.
  • 3. Develop abilities that help a person's balance and harmony in the intrapersonal area.
  • 4. Avoid personal wear and tear at work or interventions, by facilitating a more balanced dedication and care for the caregiver.
  • 5. Improve motivation, quality and satisfaction in the helping relationship.
  • 6. Encourage professionals to transmit, as far as possible, the methods learned, as well as the attitudes and values that are cultivated, both to users and to teams.


  • Taught in 16 teaching hours: 9 hours of live online sessions (6 sessions of 1.5 hours); 6 hours of 1 practical online workshop and 1 hour of tutoring.
  • In addition to the theoretical presentation of the topics, practical workshops will be held during which the guided practice of different meditation techniques will be facilitated. Each session consists of an explanatory part and a practical part, with one or more short practice sessions and time for the participants to ask questions.
  • This course requires commitment to personal practice from the participants. The course is carried out online through the virtual classroom of Nebrija Global Campus. The lectures scheduled in a calendar previously communicated to the students are broadcast live with the professor's initial teaching presentation and later an interaction with the students to answer questions.
  • Teaching material and bibliography provided by teachers.
  • Exercises for students with follow-up. Solving of a clinical case.
  • Personalized tutoring sessions.

The student will have to take a multiple-choice exam (50 questions, 5 possibilities with only one valid answer), and will need 60% of correct answers to obtain the certificate of achievement to guarantee the assimilation of concepts and the fulfillment of the objectives.
