Mindfulness Self-Compassion


Hannah Hawkins-Esther and Amy Stern will present on Mindful Self-Compassion.

Self compassion isn’t just something we tell ourselves to dismiss life’s real challenges, or to feel good in the short term. Scientific research is demonstrating that a deliberate practice of self-compassion provides lasting physical and emotional benefits that allow us to take on the challenges of life with a greater sense of balance and resiliency. Self-compassion can be defined as learning to treat yourself the way you would treat a good friend when they suffer, fall short or fail in some way. Amy and Hannah will share some of this research, explain the three elements of self-compassion: mindfulness, common humanity and self-kindness and lead participants through experiential exercises to illustrate this often under-appreciated and sometimes challenging resource.
