Description:
Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly as we would a good friend we cared about. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a compassionate way whenever we experience painful emotions. We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in—and responding with compassion—are essential steps toward a happier, more fulfilling life. Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease, motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism, and help prevent caregiver burnout. Appropriate for professionals and non-professionals alike.
