“A moment of self-compassion can change your day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.” – Christopher K. Germer
It is easy to get caught by our habitual critical thoughts. By learning how to take self-compassion breaks throughout your day, you can interrupt your habitual thought patterns that bring you down, and shift your state into experiencing self compassion and a state of harmony. In this workshop, you will:
1. Learn and develop the practical skills of mindfulness meditation, including methods for (a) deepening concentration and (b) responding skillfully to stress, and difficult emotions and thought patterns.
2. Learn how intentionally to cultivate self compassion, equanimity, and self acceptance.
3. Identify negative self talk and apply the three steps to reach a state of self compassion.
