Most of us struggle to be kind to ourselves. When you’re a parent and caregiver in addition to all of the other roles you play in your life, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and overlook the caring attention you need.
A shift in the direction of your attention—recognizing that as a human being, you too are a worthy recipient of compassion can make a huge difference in your life. St.Amant is hosting an 8-week program that will teach practices that have the power to radically transform the way you relate to yourself and your life.
In this program, you’ll learn:
• how to stop being so hard on yourself
• how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
• how to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
• how to transform difficult relationships, both old and new
• mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
• the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
• how to become your own best teacher
