The Power of Self-Compassion

Self-compassion involves treating ourselves kindly, like we would a good friend we care 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 program will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way to ourselves in daily life. Through lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises, 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. Practices will also be introduced to help ease stress for caregivers. This program is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.

Mindful Self-Compassion Core Skills Workshop

Join Kristin Neff and Chris Germer for a Mindful Self-Compassion Core Skills Workshop. This workshop is an opportunity to immerse yourself in some of the key practices and exercises of the full 8-week MSC program in an intensive online format. The course is intended for mental health and medical professionals as well as the general population.

Fierce Self-Compassion Workshop

Fierce self-compassion involves taking action in the world to protect, provide and motivate ourselves to alleviate our suffering. It means saying “no” to others who are hurting us – drawing our boundaries firmly. Or saying “no” to our own harmful behaviors, so that we can be safe and healthy. It means giving ourselves what we genuinely need – mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually – without subordinating our needs to those of others, so we can be authentic and fulfilled. 

This unique workshop led by Dr. Neff explores the action-oriented side of self-compassion including protecting ourselves and drawing boundaries. Prior experience with self-compassion is recommended before taking this course. (If you are new to self-compassion, we recommend taking Kristin's Introduction to self-compassion workshop on June 4th or else take her recorded Introductory workshop.)  If you’ve already learned about self-compassion, this course will take you one step further as you learn how self-compassion can help you speak up and claim your power.
