“Self-compassion—taking care of ourselves just as we’d treat someone we love dearly.”
― Christopher K. Germer
How do you respond to yourself when something goes wrong, when you make a mistake, feel inadequate, or need care. Do you treat yourself as a friend or a foe?
If you find that you are kinder to others when they struggle than you are to yourself, come to our session to get a bit of practice at being a friend to yourself.
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) offers the skills you need to learn how to treat yourself like a friend! MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience. Mindfulness helps us to recognize 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, caring force, and understanding so that we soothe, comfort, and provide for ourselves when we’re hurting.
In this 1.5 hour live online experiential program, you’ll be guided by Stina and Cecilia. The exercises will introduce you to the power of MSC. You’ll get a taste of how to respond to yourself with kindness, just like you would to a loved one who’s struggling. Great introduction for those considering the full 8-week MSC course (click here for link to full course) we are offering starting September 18, 2022.
