Cultivating self-compassion can fundamentally shift how we relate to ourselves and to our anxiety. Instead of meeting challenges with self-blame and criticism, we can learn bring to care for ourselves much as we would care for someone we loved.
We can learn to bring a kind and mindful attention to our experiences (thoughts, emotions, and sensations) and a sense of love and care to ourselves, right in the midst of difficult situations.
With practice, we can strengthen this inner quality of presence, connectedness, and kindness to improve emotional well-being, build resilience and improve our relationship with our anxiety, and ourselves.
What to expect:
This program is high experiential. Each class we will present some theory and introduce a new practice to try. You will have the opportunity to experience the practice for yourself and then self-reflect individually, as well as in small groups if comfortable (optional).
The classes will not be recorded in order to protect confidentiality.
