Spring 2019 Mindful Self-Compassion

Mindful Self-Compassion ~ An Eight Week Course

With Hilary Borison & Liz Fitzgerald

We may find it’s easier to have compassion for others than for ourselves. Mindfulness helps us meet the present moment with non-judgmental awareness, while self-compassion helps us turn towards difficulties with caring presence. Like two wings of a bird, they can lift us to freedom.

This course will explore:

  • The benefits of self-compassion
  • Common misgivings about self-compassion
  • Why self-acceptance is more beneficial than self-esteem
  • How to cultivate mindfulness and be more present for our lives
  • How to activate our “tend and befriend” nature and direct it inward
  • How to connect with our common humanity to reduce feelings of separation

If you would like to gain freedom from self-criticism, feel a deeper, more loving connection with yourself and others, and develop the courage to mindfully meet whatever arises with compassion, attend this 8-week course including a half-day retreat in April.
