Mindful Self Compassion Program registration now open

August 9, 2019

Together this Fall, the Compassion Project and St.Amant are offering Mindful Self Compassion. This joint venture is being facilitated by Dr.Michael McIntyre and Jennifer Kilimnik.
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.
Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits. and more satisfying relationships. Learn how to motivate yourself with the same kindness and understanding you’d offer a close friend, enabling you to care for yourself while caring for others. 
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
