November Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop

Kind and compassionate practices to reflect on all month.

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.

The workshop is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners 🙂

Tickets are non-refundable or transferable. Thank you.

New Year 2018 Mindful Self-Compassion RETREAT: Mindfully envision 2018

Start the new year with a clear vision of how you want really live your ‘one wild and precious’ life. Sometimes we get so busy and caught up that we have no time to reflect on where we are and where we are going, we need to take time out. Preferably in a peaceful beautiful place, like Drumalis Retreat Centre, Larne, Co. Antrim.

On our 2018 Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) retreat we will devote time to kind and compassionate mindfulness practices, relaxation, movement, good food, timeout in amazinly beautiful outdoors and time indoors to reflect and plan for the coming year.

It’s hard to believe that two days in Larne can reset your life for the year ahead but it really is possible, please read what people said about the two-day MSC retreat I held in Drumalis in September 2016 at the end of this retreat description.

Arrive 10am on Saturday morning for home made scones and tea. All refreshments, vegetarian lunches and dinner and bread and breakfast in comfortable, clean hotel like accomodation provided.

All rooms are single and ensuite – however it is possible to request a double or twin to share with a partner or friend. Just let me know when booking and I will allocate appropriate room for you.

Our thoughts become our reality – let’s take time to choose them carefully this year. It’s going to be a fun and special weekend, don’t miss it. : )

Check out the at the location here: http://www.drumalis.co.uk

It is possible to stay on the Friday night B&B if you wish.
