My Self-Compassion Journey

Six years ago I found myself at a week long training in Mindful Self-Compassion on Whidbey Island, Washington and the trajectory of my life changed. The practices resonated deeply and challenged my inner self-critic that had been running the show for too long.

I went on to Batavia, New York six months later to train as a teacher and since that time have continued to practice teach and integrate Mindful Self-Compassion into my personal and professional life. Over the past 18 months I have further deepened by own practice and my own teaching as I was mentored into becoming recognized as a Certified MSC Teacher.

I offer a deep bow of gratitude to my teachers Chris Germer, PhDKristin Neff, Ph.D., Steve Hickman, Michelle Becker, Kristy Arbon, mentor Dawn MacDonald,
co-teachers Carol Ranger, Kristy Williams, Zoey Ryan and to the hundreds of courageous and open hearted program participants I have had the privilege to teach.

What’s next? More practice. Because as Pema Chodren says “we can still be crazy after all these years”.  More teaching. Because I love it.
