Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion

Self-compassion is a courageous mental attitude that stands up to harm—the harm that we inflict on ourselves every day by overworking, overeating, overanalyzing, and overreacting. 

It helps us recognize when we’re under stress
face what’s happening in our lives (mindfulness) 
and take a kinder approach to life’s challenges.

Join us for an experiential workshop that will teach you self-compassion skills you can begin to use immediately in your life.
“A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.” Dr. C. Germer
