Soften, Soothe, Allow is a practice for working with difficult emotions arising from life’s challenges. In this practice from our Mindful Self-Compassion program you’ll bring to mind a life challenge and explore the emotions that arise around it and how to use a body-centered approach to increase ease and awareness. Soften, Soothe, Allows orients around two key ideas: “name it and you can tame it,” and “feel it and you can heal it.”

See also the R.A.I.N. practice for a mindfulness-based approach to practicing with an ongoing difficulty.
