Self-Acceptance: A Two-Day Intensive for the Brain, Body, Heart – San Diego

February 6, 2016 - February 7, 2016

With Kelly McGonigal,PhD, Kristin Neff,PhD and Tami Simon

Is your inner critic the loudest voice in your mind? Do you find yourself dwelling on your shortcomings far more than your successes? Is it easier for you to extend kindness and forgiveness to others than to yourself?

If so, you’re not alone. Even after years of spiritual practice, self-improvement, or therapy, many of us still find self-acceptance to be the hardest challenge we face.

But there is a solution.

With Self-Acceptance: A Two-Day Intensive for the Brain, Body, and Heart, you’re invited to a weekend dedicated to helping you cultivate this essential quality for happiness and success. Hosted by Sounds True founder Tami Simon, this experiential workshop features two of today’s leading experts in this emerging area of study, Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Kelly McGonigal. Come together in a beautiful seaside setting to explore the latest scientific research on self-acceptance—and learn transformative practices for treating yourself with kindness, honesty, and love.

Self-Compassion and Emotional Resilience, Minneapolis, MN

April 6, 2016

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we cared about. Rather than continually judging and evaluating ourselves, self-compassion involves generating kindness toward ourselves as imperfect human beings. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in — and responding compassionately to our own imperfections without harsh self-condemnation — are essential steps toward living happier, more fulfilling lives. Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. Practices will also be introduced to help ease stress for caregivers. This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.
