Christopher Germer: Self-Compassion

The Healing Power of Mindful Self-Compassion

Self-compassion is a key element of mindfulness practice and the foundation of emotional healing. It involves generating kindness and respect toward ourselves as imperfect humans, and learning to be present with the inevitable struggles of life with greater ease.

This workshop will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in—and responding compassionately to our own imperfections without judgment or self- blame—are essential steps toward living happier, more fulfilling lives.
