ONLINE Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion
ONLINE Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion

This two hour workshop offers an opportunity to learn about and experience some of the practices of self-compassion and its benefit on well-being, especially when one is suffering. Included in this workshop is an introduction to the three main components of self-compassion: mindfulness, common humanity, and self-kindness.
Self-compassion is a sensitivity towards our own suffering and the desire to alleviate it. It embodies the qualities of tenderness, comfort, kindness and connection.
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who did not receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It is a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm we inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-denial, or self absorbtion. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, forgive ourselves, motivate ourselves with kindness, care for others, and be fully human. It has also been proven to lower anxiety and depression, maintain healthy habits for well-being, and lead to more satisfying personal relationships.
