Talk at the Yoga and Science Conference, Austin

February 29

This conference presents scientific information as it relates to the practice of yoga.  My talk will discuss the role of self-compassion in creating a kinder and more connected way of inhabiting our minds and our bodies. It will discuss research on the health benefits of self- compassion, including yoga as a way to enhance self-compassion. It will also compare self- compassion to self-esteem, arguing that self-compassion provides a more stable and less contingent sense of self-worth. Finally, a brief self-compassion practice will be taught for use in daily life.  For more information, go to yogaandscience.com

May 2020

Fierce Self-Compassion workshop, Kitchener, ON, Canada

May 25

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.

This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.
