Workshop Description

Dark haired woman with arms in the shape of an X

This unique workshop is focused on integrating yin and yang – tender and fierce – self-compassion. Yin self-compassion involves “being with” ourselves in a compassionate way, as we naturally do for our friends who struggle. Yang self-compassion involves taking action in the world to protect, provide and motivate ourselves – saying “no” to others who are hurting us, drawing our boundaries firmly; giving ourselves what we need to be fulfilled mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually; and motivating ourselves to reach our goals or make needed changes. It will teach theory, research, and concrete practices from the empirically-supported Mindful Self-Compassion program, as well as new practices developed specifically to engender fierce self-compassion.

 

At the end of the program participants will better able to:
• Identify the central components of yin and yang self-compassion
• Identify the problems with separating fierce and tender self-compassion
• Describe key research that supports the benefits of self-compassion
• Utilize techniques to increase and integrate yin and yang self-compassion in everyday life

This workshop is most appropriate for individuals who already have some experience practicing self-compassion and/or mindfulness. It is relevant for the general public as well as to practicing mental health professionals.

You will receive:
An electronic handout package emailed prior to the workshop and a workshop certificate afterwards. Login details and instructions will be emailed in advance of the workshop.

She is an Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin, and the author of several books related to Self-Compassion. She offers workshops worldwide and has developed (in partnership with Chris Germer) an eight-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program; an empirically supported and internationally recognized program designed to cultivate self-compassion. In 2016, Kristin also partnered with Brené Brown, Ph.D., to develop and co-facilitate an online course on Self-Compassion.
