Self-Compassion Cards were created to support you in learning, practicing and integrating mindfulness and self-compassion practices into your life. After taking our initial Mindful Self-Compassion Training in 2014, we found ourselves putting little sticky notes around the home and office to remind ourselves of the practices. In collaboration with friend and artist, Johanne Galipeau, we co-created our series of Self-Compassion Cards.
On the text side of each card, you will find information to help deepen your understanding about mindfulness and self-compassion as well as guidance on specific practices that build self-awareness, self-kindness & self-care. On the other side of each card, you will find original art work from the collection of Johanne Galipeau.
You can use them by pulling a card from the deck and using the message as an inspiration for your day. Notice how you feel in your body when you first saw the card you picked. Put the card in a prominent spot on your desk, dashboard, computer for the day to remind yourself to breathe the message in.
Johanne Galipeau is a French Canadian artist who lives on Gabriola Island, B.C.
