Course description

Mindful Self-CompassionDifficulty, pain, and suffering are part of human life. Are you seeking better tools to work with these experiences? Are you ready to stop running away? Is it possible to find the sweet nectar of these painful experiences and grow from them? Learn how to work with physical and experiential difficulty with self-compassion, an evidence based way of supporting and often improving the human experience. This warm-hearted connected presence with your own experience can be a powerful foundation in daily life and can be shared when suffering is witnessed in others.
