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 imperfections 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.

In this workshop you will learn practices for cultivating self-compassion, such as: affectionate breathing; compassionate body scan; loving-kindness meditation; soften, soothe, allow; and more.

Limited space available so register early!

WHAT IS COMPASSION FATIGUE?

Compassion fatigue is a form of care-giver burnout, manifesting in deep physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion that, over time, erodes empathy, compassion and connection for and to others - and one's best self.

In this workshop we will explore: the causes, signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue; how to develop a self-care action plan; and strategies and tools for coping and continuous renewal.
