There are so many places within us that need to be comforted, soothed, and validated, even as we are activated by the times. Being able to sit with our feelings and our inner lives, and have a dialogue with the narrative of our personal and cultural lives is central to our journeys of identity, belonging, wellness, and meaning. This 3-hour Mindful Self Compassion workshop aims to connect and empower participants to create a greater sense of safety and connection within and between.
In this workshop, you will learn about the science of self-compassion, as well as debunk commonly held myths about self-compassion. You will learn and practice four core self-compassion skills. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
This 3 hour introduction is particularly aimed at BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ community members and caregivers, and all those who have felt exhaustion, stress, or burnout during the times of COVID-19 and increased calls for racial justice, women’s rights, and human dignity.
The SF Love Dojo and Dr. Ravi Chandra believe in “These 5 Things”: Mindfulness, Compassion, Relatedness, Creativity, and Insight. We will bring all these to bear on the challenge of suffering and being in a world of suffering.
