Exploring Self-Compassion

    7:00–8:30 p.m.
    Boyle Conference Room
    Fee: $60
    Register online here

Research shows that self-compassion is one of the most important factors in dealing with life’s difficulties and is more effective than self-esteem for reaching goals and having a satisfying life. In this three-part series we will explore what it means to be a self-compassionate person, tools to cultivate more self-compassion, and strategies to work with your inner critic.

Week One: Introduction to Self-Compassion
    • What it is, why it’s important, and how to practice it

Week Two: Developing Resources and Working with Your Inner Critic
    • Practices that encourage knowing your “Wise Self”
    • How to silence your own critical voice

Week Three: Overcoming Pitfalls on the Road to Self-Compassion
    • Why self-compassion is an ongoing practice
    • How to stay motivated
    • How to recognize the effects of it in your life
