Lateral Kindness, Grace and Sustainable Compassion

September 5, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
6th International Critical Dietetics Conference Grenada, Spain + Google Map

In our work as health care practitioners, we have the privilege of hearing people’s stories and witnessing their journey through difficult times with health and healing. To truly be present to hear and deeply honour others, to share our own story from a professional position that maintains our credibility yet locates us as simply another human being, requires many skills and clarity of intention. We need to be grounded in kindness, have open hearts, understand common humanity and have tools to manage our own reactions and triggers.

Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion

January 8, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Centre for Compassion Inspired Health Nanaimo, British Columbia V9R 2Y2 Canada + Google Map
$25.00

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
