Introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion
Siri Chandler & Lotta Adelstal
Join us for this workshop with Siri Chandler and Lotta Adelstal. The workshop is relevant for anyone interested in looking to learn more about the benefits of mindful self-compassion, a research based training program.
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 workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. Through discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life.
