Christmas Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop

The run-up to Christmas can be a stressful time, this workshop will help you to manage the madness! It will be practical and fun – with Chocolate meditation included! The theme is mindful celebration 🙂

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. It fun, practical and experiential. I’ve been running this workshop for five years and people regularly re-attend. 🙂

Sometimes it will be possible to transfer your ticket – subject to availability. Workshops in Winter months tend to sell out so transfer is limited, summer workshops usually have more availability.

It is possible to buy a ticket as a gift, the person just needs to give the name the ticket was booked under when they check in with me on the day.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing you.

Entering the new year fully alive

Start the new year with a deeper vision of how you want to 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.

This retreat is going to be different from my previous years retreats. We won’t be making vision boards but we will be deepening our practice. There will be lots of space, time and silence and kind restorative body based practice.

We will start with a bowl of soup on arrival at 6pm on the Friday evening and finish with a cup of tea at 4pm on Sunday.

Some experience of meditation, mindfulness and/or yoga is desirable.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
