The Art And Science of Self Compassion Kristin Neff, PhD
This talk will present theory and research on self-compassion, which a burgeoning empirical literature has shown to be powerfully associated with psychological wellbeing. It will distinguish self-compassion from self-esteem, and discuss research indicating that self-compassion is a more powerful and effective motivational tool than self-criticism.
About the Conference
The Annual Interpersonal Neurobiology Conference will offer an in-depth scholarly, practical, and immersive gathering in which we will explore the nature of the human mind, the experience of consciousness, and how the influence of our social brain’s influence on our connections with others, and with our selves.
Kristin will be giving a talk on Embodying Self-Compassion at the Eileen Fisher Lifework Lab conference called Body Wisdom: Waking Up to What the Body Knows, featuring Zuleikha, Kristin Neff, and Tami Simon
We spend most of our time living in our heads.
It’s natural to think it’s our best — or only — source of information. But as a result, we miss out on vast amounts of wisdom, intuition, creativity, and brilliance — all accessible from our bodies. Most of us never learned how to read the body’s subtle signs. We weren’t taught how to slow down and listen to what our bodies are telling us. So we shut down, tense up, and stress out.
It’s time to change all that. Our well-being depends on it! Let’s learn the language of our bodies and train ourselves to recognize and pay attention to the cues and messages they are always sending. Let’s discover what happens when we tune in to our body sensations and access what we know from the inside out.
