Why practice self-compassion?

Through research, self-compassion has been linked to positive well-being in the reduction of negative mind states, including anxiety, depression, perfectionism and shame. In addition, it has been associated with improved emotional coping and greater resilience.

Having compassion for oneself is really no different than having compassion for others. In this workshop, you will be given the opportunity to explore self-compassion by participating in reflection and writing exercises, meditations, and open discussions.
