An introduction to mindful self-compassion July 24 2019

Published 20 June 2019 Associated Categories Events, Mindful Self-Compassion, Workshops

An introductory workshop where you will learn about tips and practices that help and establish positive and healthy habits of self-care that act as an antidote to self criticism, anxiety,and stress, and above all, a powerful training in emotional resilience and well-being. This workshop also introduces you to the mindful self-compassion programme and what you can expect to learn.

“The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness. Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can give ourselves what we need. Common humanity opens us to our essential inter-relatedness, so that we know we aren’t alone. Mindfulness opens us to the present moment, so we can accept our experience with greater ease. Together they comprise a state of warm-hearted, connected presence.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or who feel uncomfortable when they are good to themselves. It’s a courageous attitude that stands up to harm, including the harm that we unwittingly inflict on ourselves through self-criticism, self-isolation, or self-absorption. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think”.  The centre for Mindful self-compassion programme
