Three-hour online workshop with Kristin Neff,11am-2pm Central, hosted by the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion
Since the publication of Kristin Neff’s ground-breaking book Self-Compassion, there has been a surge of interest in the science and practice of self-compassion. This has often focused on the tender, nurturing aspect of self-compassion, which involves “being with” ourselves in a compassionate way.
But self-compassion can be fierce as well as tender.
Fierce self-compassion involves taking action in the world to protect, provide for, and motivate ourselves to alleviate suffering. It means saying “no” to others who are hurting us – drawing our boundaries firmly. Or saying “no” to our own harmful behaviors so that we can be safe and healthy. It means giving ourselves what we genuinely need – mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually – without subordinating our needs to those of others so we can be authentic and fulfilled.
Learn the essentials of fierce self-compassion practice in this workshop with MSC co-founder Kristin Neff, Ph.D.
