Talk at the Yoga and Science Conference, Austin

February 29, 2020

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

Self-compassion in Troubled Times, Online

July 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Self-compassion isn't selfish, it's essential. But how can we learn to be kinder to ourselves, especially when facing difficult times?
Self-compassion involves learning to treat ourselves with care and support. Rather than continually judging ourselves, we can have compassion toward ourselves as imperfect humans and learn to cope better with the inevitable struggles of life.

In this talk I will reflect on the current global crisis and show how we can use both fierce and tender self-compassion to cope with the pandemic and also racial injustice. In times like these we need a friend, and we can learn to be a friend to ourselves.

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.

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.
