Self-Compassion Core Skills Training for Health Professionals.

May 12, 2018


Overextended?  Undernourished?  Stressed?  Burned out?

Providing care to those who are suffering or struggling is what we do. Exercise, yoga and eating well are some of the ways we may try to care for ourselves, when we can. But this can often feel like added pressure – and is impossible while on the job.

There is another way that increasing research is showing can help us prevent burnout, manage vicarious trauma and build resiliency – even in the midst of overwhelming situations.

This one day workshop will provide you with the science, research and practices of mindfulness and self-compassion. You will learn how to include yourself in your circle of compassion and cultivate sustainable compassion for yourself and others.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s a skill that provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.

Join us for an experiential skill building day.  You will leave with practices and tools that you can begin to use immediately to help you learn to include yourself in your circle of compassion, be kinder and more caring to yourself even in the midst of stress and suffering.  The event will be held at beautiful Bethlehem Centre on Westwood Lake in Nanaimo.  Lunch will be included.

“Thanks so much again for the wonderful course. You are both very talented facilitators and the event felt seamless to me because of your hospitality and skill. The tools taught are incredibly powerful and I only wish I had encountered them earlier in life, both personally and professionally! The Bethlehem Centre was a wonderful venue and I especially appreciated the home-made chicken soup, what a rare treat to have such great food at a course”.  Sheila Fetter, RD., Past participant of Preventing Burnout with Mindful Self-Compassion Core Skills Workshop
