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.
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) – an empirically-supported, 8-week, training program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding.
Program activities include meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. The goal is for participants to directly experience self-compassion and learn practices that evoke self-compassion in daily life.
If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete. Jack Kornfield
Sustainable Compassion can be learned. It starts with coming back to ourselves. Tuning in. Connecting with how we too are struggling at times while witnessing, caring for and supporting others. This workshop will support you to include yourself in your circle of compassion.
