Who of us has not left them-self out in the process of caring for others?
Who does not have an inner critic that barks at us periodically?
Who has difficulty navigating stress or conflict in interpersonal relationships?
Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism Handle difficult emotions with greater ease Transform challenging relationships, old and new Manage caregiver fatigue Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
The day will consist of brief didactic discussion followed by MSC core practices and exercises.
Lunch will be provided; registration via Eventbrite
