The Power of Mindful Self-Compassion, San Francisco, CA

February 18

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. The materials presented in the workshop are drawn from the 8-week, empirically supported Mindful Self-Compassion program developed by Chris Germer and Kristin Neff. 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. CE hours available.
