Course Navigation

We are all caring and compassionate people, but for complex reasons most of us seem to exclude ourselves from our own circle of caring. That has consequences. First, we can’t be all we want to be for those around us. Second, we can’t depend on the one person who could support us through thick and thin: ourselves.

In this session, you will learn about what self-compassion is and how it does—or does not—show up in your life. We’ll talk about research on the benefits of cultivating self-compassion, and also address common misgivings, such as the perception that self-compassion is ‘weak.’ We will then offer some simple practices to bring more self-compassion into your life.

This also serves as an orientation for the 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion course we will be teaching starting Tuesday April 26 at 6 pm ET. More info on that course can be found here: https://www.modestlymindful.com/mindful-self-compassion-8-week
