Mindful Self-Compassion Primer, Online

January 19 @ 11:00 am - January 20 @ 3:00 pm

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 some of the essential ideas and key practices of the 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion in a brief format. It will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way when we experience painful emotions. Through discussion and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into you daily life. You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. This course is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.

If you are new to self-compassion then this is a great place to start, and your attendance will qualify you to attend the Fierce Self-Compassion workshop offered on Feb. 02 and 04, 2021.

Fierce Self-Compassion workshop, Online

February 2 @ 9:00 am - February 4 @ 12:00 pm

This advanced workshop is focused on integrating yin and yang – tender and fierce – self-compassion. Tender self-compassion involves “being with” ourselves in a compassionate way, as we naturally do for our friends who struggle. Fierce 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 will be taught on zoom in two 3-hour sessions (February 2 and 4, 2021 from 11am - 2 pm CT). It is relevant for the general public and practicing mental health professionals. Prior experience with Mindful Self-Compassion training is required. The four hour Self-Compassion Primer workshop being taught Jan. 19 fulfills this requirement.
