Fierce Self-Compassion Workshop, Online
August 8 - August 9
This unique workshop is focused on integrating yin and yang – tender and fierce – self-compassion. Yin self-compassion involves “being with” ourselves in a compassionate way, as we naturally do for our friends who struggle. Yang self-compassion involves taking action in the world to protect, provide and motivate ourselves – saying “no” to others who are hurting us, drawing our boundaries firmly; giving ourselves what we need to be fulfilled mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually; and motivating ourselves to reach our goals or make needed changes. It will teach theory, research, and concrete practices from the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion program, as well as new practices developed specifically to engender fierce self-compassion.
Participants of this workshop will be taught over two days (in three hour sessions) online via zoom. Aug 8-9 from (1-4pm PT). It is most appropriate for individuals who already have some experience practicing self-compassion. It is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.
