Anxiety education, strategies and mindfulness self-compassion are brought together to help you find coping strategies to ground us and be in tune with our body and our spirit. Self-Compassion invites you to recognize that as a human being, you are a worthy recipient of compassion. The practice of self-compassion involves the capacity to comfort and soothe ourselves, and to motivate ourselves with encouragement, when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. Self-compassion is learned in part by connecting with our innate compassion for others and including ourselves in that circle of compassion. Self-compassion can be learned by anyone!
The live group program draws on the skills of mindfulness and focuses on developing the resource of self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional wellbeing.
Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, coping with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships. It is an inner strength that enables us to be more fully human—more fully ourselves.
