This event will be a 3-hour workshop held at Chicago’s Northeastern IL University.

We tend to be much harder on ourselves than we are on others. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional wellbeing. It can boost happiness, reduce depression and anxiety, and can even help to maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and self-compassionate can lead to greater ease in our daily lives.

I invite you to learn how to treat yourself the way you would treat a good friend. In this workshop we explore how we typically respond when inevitable difficulties arise in our lives and learn tools for becoming a more kind, supportive companion to ourselves and others. Program activities typically include short talks, experiential exercises, meditations (no previous experience necessary), group discussion and home practices.

In this 3-hour workshop on Mindful Self-Compassion you will:

– Learn 6 MSC related topics (including what self-compassion is and misgivings people have)
– Experience 3 Informal Practices
– Participate in 1 Exercise
– Learn 2 Meditations

Curious about your own level of self-compassion?
