Event Description

Dr. Sydney Spears is a researcher, author, and certified MSC teacher who uses self-compassion to help advance global social justice. She is currently serving as the Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging for the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, and conducts workshops helping MSC teachers create an inclusive environment in their classes. She is also the author of “Finding Self-Compassion: A Mindfulness Workbook for Getting to Know and Love Yourself.”

Sydney has thought deeply about how self-compassion can help combat racism among those who identify with groups that have been either oppressors or oppressed.  In our conversation, we’ll explore questions such as: how might self-compassion come to the aid if you have committed a microaggression, if you overhear a racist comment, or if you are discriminated against based on your ethnicity or sexual orientation? Join us for an insightful discussion exploring how self-compassion can promote a more just and inclusive world for all.
