How do you typically react to difficulties in life- work, rejection, physical problems or financial difficulties? Most of us deal with such difficulties by blaming ourselves. You can fill in the blank for what you tell yourself during these times, “I am not good enough. I will never succeed. It’s my fault.”

Self- esteem needs success to prove your self-worth, whereas self-compassion says you are worthy no matter what. Integrating mindful self-compassion (MSC) in our daily life supports us in dealing with difficult emotions and situations. It increases confidence and a healthy sense of self. It helps us to process difficult experiences and developing self-awareness. Self-compassion is a skill that can be cultivated.

This workshop is an introduction to how to cultivate mindful self-compassion. It is based on an 8 week program in Mindful Self-Compassion that Dr Kristen Neff and Dr Christopher Germer created based on their research in mindfulness and self compassion.

This is an experiential workshop. Space is limited to 10 people. Pre-registration is required.
