WHEN: Saturday mornings, Jan. 14th - March 4th, 2023, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EST Optional Retreat day, Sunday, Feb. 12th, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
What is Mindful Self-compassion?
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. No previous mindfulness experience is required to participate in this course. Practicing mindful self-compassion promotes emotional strength and resilience. It helps you to motivate yourself with kindness, forgive yourself and others when needed, and respond to difficult emotions. Learning to be more self-compassionate can reduce self-criticism, improve our ability to connect authentically with others and respond to our struggles with greater perspective.
In the course, you will learn how to:
* Practice self compassion in daily life
* Apply mindfulness and self compassion skills in difficult moments
* Motivate yourself with kindness rather than self-criticism
* Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
* Transform challenging relationships, old and new
* Manage caregiver fatigue
* Practice the art of savouring, gratitude and self-appreciation
