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

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.

Fierce Self-Compassion Masterclass, Online

July 25 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Since the publication of the ground-breaking book Self-Compassion, there has been a surge of interest in the science and practice of self-compassion, particularly in clinical settings. But that has often focused on the tender, nurturing aspect of self-compassion, which involves being with ourselves with warm acceptance. But self-compassion can be fierce as well as tender.

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. 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. And it means motivating ourselves to reach our goals or make needed changes in our lives.

This unique three hour masterclass will teach skills of fierce and tender self-compassion, helping us to find healthy balance in our lives. There will be a satisfying mix of experiential learning and science-based insights.
