Self-compassion: Learn to Be Kinder to Yourself
January 26, 2019$TBA
Note: this workshop is part of a day-long women’s retreat at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality at St. Norbert Abbey. For details on the time of my workshop, please go to: http://www.norbertines.org
When we feel compassion for others, we feel kindness toward them, empathy and a desire to help reduce their suffering. It’s the same when we turn compassion towards ourselves. Self-compassion means offering kindness and understanding to yourself during difficult times, when you make mistakes or notice something you don’t like about yourself, rather than judging yourself-harshly; it means realizing that suffering, failure and imperfection are part of the shared human experience. Self-compassion is not self-indulgence – it is self-care, confirmed by research as the cornerstone of emotional health and healing.
