This workshop is coming at a time when all of us are grappling with changes, disappointments, grieving losses, the unknown future of ourselves, families, work , local communities and the entire international community.
How do you typically react to difficulties in life- work stress, rejection, physical problems, financial difficulties? Most of us deal with such difficulties by finding faults in ourselves, “It’s my fault. I will never succeed. I am not good enough.” You can fill in the blank for what you say to yourself during challenging times.
Integrating Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) in our daily life supports us in dealing with difficult emotions and challenging situations. It increases confidence and a healthy sense of self. It helps us processing 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 Kristin Neff, PhD and Christopher Germer, PhD, created based on research in the field of self compassion and mindfulness. This is an experiential workshop.
When you take this workshop, you learn some skills to soften, so to speak, the blow of all these uncertainties.

Space is limited to 10 people.
