Finding Inner Peace During Difficult Times with Self-Compassion Practices
Self-compassion transforms lives! It is re-defined as the ability to care, to soothe and to comfort but also to strengthen when it is needed. It is revolutionizing self-care and emotional coping skills in psychology. Self-Compassion is a new skill- building program to harness the power to cultivate inner strengths; to courageously attend to difficulties with understanding and kindness to empower the self and as a result find inner peace. Developing self-compassion is to acquire an attitude of goodwill towards the self and to be able to skillfully attend to the self when times are tough in order to resolve challenges.Participants will learn that Self-Compassion is not sainthood, self-indulgence, narcissism or self-pity but a new way to relate to shame, anger, anxiety and distress by reconnecting with the self and others in order to ease pain and gain greater emotional strength, resilience and well-being. The practice of self-compassion can create dramatic changes for the better in all aspects. Mindful Self-Compassion teaches how to be aware in the present moment when difficult feelings arise (mindfulness) and how to bypass our negative thinking bias or default mode to respond more effectively. During this experiential presentation participants will learn the core principles and practices of mindful self-compassion and acquire portable skills on how to cope with stressors in their professional and personal lives.
