Why are we so often our own toughest critic? Why do we talk to ourselves in ways that we would never consider speaking to others? Self-compassion, learning to understand and calm our inner critic, is central to living a brave life as a partner, friend, parent, and leader. The Self-Compassion workshop combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for courage and emotional wellbeing.

This four-lesson online workshop, co-facilitated by Drs. Kristin Neff and Brené Brown, provides valuable, research-based tools that can help us integrate self-compassion into our daily lives. Together, we will walk through exercises that teach us to be compassionate and kind not only to others in their times of struggle, but also to ourselves.

Specific goals of the workshop include:

  • Understanding how and why criticizing ourselves rather than being supportive with ourselves actually becomes a habit.
  • Understanding the impact of our self-critical voice and how to acknowledge it then learn from it.
  • Understanding how the myths and stereotypes about self-compassion can get in the way of you actually practicing it. No, it’s not woo-woo. It’s real and researched.
  • Learning and practicing three strategies that you can use in your daily life when you’re experiencing tough emotions.

The course is now available. All four lessons are available and can be completed at your own pace.

There are no prerequisites for this workshop. If you’ve already taken the Living Brave Semester and are interested in learning more about self-compassion, this is a great way to develop a self-compassion practice in a more focused way.
