Mindfulness is the first step in emotional healing – being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings (such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion) with a spirit of openness and curiosity.
Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding. We’re then able to soothe and comfort ourselves when we’re hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise.
Join us for the warm, nourishing workshop to get a taste of Mindful Self-Compassion.
I have struggled with my lack of self-compassion all my life (I am 71) and this is the first thing I have encountered that I believe will help me to break my self-criticism. When I signed up for this course, I was initially skeptical I would benefit, but I found every moment of it was extremely helpful.
