Mindfulness and self compassion 2 hour Workshop

Having just completed training with Choden – Author of Mindfulness and Compassion with Paul Gilbert in February 2015 and doing a week’s training with Chris Germer (in May 2015) pioneer in ‘compassion’ training i’m keen to share some of these lovely practices with you.

We will endulge in some kind and compassionate practices and set you up for your week ahead.

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. Thank you.
