Event Details


Helping others is what we do. But without including ourselves in our circle of care, we can slowly move towards burnout. Irritiability, depression, anxiety, frustration, relationship struggle, health issues.  

Old coping mechanisms of notions of “sucking it up” or “stuffing it down” only contribute to have shame, anxiety, and feelings of alienation - leading to relationship problems, workplace difficulties, substance abuse, anger and depression.

 Science has validated a much more effective way to meet the challenges of caring for ourselves in the midst of overwhelming and ongoing stress. This approach combines knowledge from ancient wisdom traditions, modern neuroscience and psychological research. We are learning that the most resilient, successful, and emotionally intelligent people are the ones who can face adversity and challenge with an open heart and a self-compassionate nature, rather than a rigid or self-critical one. Fortunately, research and practice shows that self-compassion is a skill that can be taught and learned. 

 

The practices of mindfulness and self-compassion are inner resources we can access to help us better manage the stresses and struggles of life. Research has demonstrated that people higher in self-compassion tend to be able to persist and achieve more in the face of adversity; cope better with challenges like divorce, trauma or chronic pain; are able to change troubling and unhealthy habits and behaviors more easily; and are perceived more positively by their partners.

In this one day workshop, you will

  • Be guided through mindfulness exercises designed to calm and nourish the nervous system
  • Learn practical tools you can use on a daily moment by moment basis to learn how to have your own back - emotionally
  • Experience how connecting with our common humanity, helps us overcome feelings of failure, isolation, or not fitting in
  • Discover a middle path between the extremes of harsh self-criticism and complete surrender can actually result in greater happiness, life satisfaction, and personal and professional achievement
  • Develop a kind inner voice, an inner ally, that can actually motivate and encourage you more than any self-criticism ever could
