Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that’s required is a shift in the direction of our attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
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
Research shows that participation in the Mindful Self Compassion program significantly increased self-compassion, compassion for others, mindfulness, and life satisfaction, as well as decreased depression, anxiety and stress.
Join us for an 8-week program designed by Drs. Kristin Neff and Chris Germer that will teach practices that have the power to radically transform the way you relate to yourself and your life. For more information or to register contact Audrey Beaudry 204-256-4301 ext. 2320.
