The Power of Self-Compassion afternoon workshop, Wimberly, TX

April 27

This afternoon workshop is offered in conjunction with full day self-compassion event in the hill country just outside of Austin and San Antonio. 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 humans and learning to be present with the inevitable struggles of life with greater ease. It motivates us to make needed changes in our lives not because we’re worthless or inadequate, but because we care about ourselves and want to lessen our suffering. 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. Through discussion 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; motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism; and how to care for others without losing yourself. This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.
