Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we care about. It provides support when times are tough so that we are more emotionally resilient. It motivates us to make needed changes in our lives not because we’re worthless or inadequate, but because we care about ourselves.
During this weekend retreat, you will practice simple tools for responding compassionately in daily life. You will learn about research demonstrating the benefits of self-compassion. Through experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills so that you can stop being so hard on yourself, handle difficult emotions with greater ease, and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. Practices will also be introduced to help ease stress for caregivers. This weekend retreat is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
