I will be giving a luncheon address at the kick off for Houston's 2016 Compassion Week. I will discuss theory and research behind self-compassion, including how we can only sustain having compassion for others by having compassion for ourselves. I will also teach a short self-compassion practice for use in daily life. Please join us for this wonderful event that is helping to bring more compassion to major cities around the globe. The first place to start, of course, is with ourselves.

Come join me as I give a 90 minute talk sponsored by the Action for Happiness movement in London.
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. A brief self-compassion practice will also be taught that can be used in daily life.

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.
