The Power of Mindful Self-Compassion, London, UK

July 13, 2019

Join us for a one-day workshop with Dr. Kristin Neff, a leading self-compassion researcher, author, and Associate Professor at the University of Texas Austin. 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 human beings. This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, participants gain practical skills of mindfulness and self-compassion. A lecture on the theory and research into self-compassion will be provided, and several informal self-compassion practices for use in daily life will be taught. The phenomena of backdraft - adverse reactions to self-compassion practice - will be discussed. Finally, participants will learn self-compassion practices designed to work with difficult emotions, motivate oneself from a place of kindness rather than criticism, combat caregiver fatigue, and cultivate self-appreciation. The workshop is relevant for the general public as well as mindfulness teachers and mental health professionals looking to learn more about the benefits of self-compassion (a certificate of attendance can be provided for your CPD portfolio).

Specific Learning Objective:s

  • Identify the three key components of self-compassion;
  • Describe key research that supports the benefits of self-compassion;
  • Practice techniques to increase self-compassion in everyday life;
  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than self-criticism; and

The Power of Fierce and Tender Self-Compassion, Online

June 12 - June 13

Self-compassion flows from the desire to alleviate our suffering. Sometimes this requires tender acceptance—“being with” ourselves in all our glorious imperfection. But self-compassion isn’t always soft and yielding. Sometimes we need to be fierce, stand up for ourselves, or find the courage to forge a new path. This workshop will provide skills for responding in a compassionate way whenever we suffer. We will explore the role of tender and fierce self-compassion in our lives, understanding how to soothe and comfort ourselves so we can handle difficult emotions with greater ease, but also to draw boundaries, fight against injustice, or motivate change. Through lecture, discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain concrete tools to put self-compassion into practice in your daily life. This course is relevant for the general public as well as to mental health professionals.

Participants of this workshop will be taught over two days (in three hour sessions) online via zoom. June 12-13, 2021 from (10am-1pm PT). It is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.
