Mindful Self – A Mindful Woman Monthly Workshop

This workshop is an introduction to Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC).  MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for emotional well being.  Mindfulness is the first step—turning with loving awareness toward difficult experience (emotions, sensations, thoughts).  Self-compassion comes next—bringing loving awareness to ourselves.  Together, mindfulness and self-compassion comprise a state of warm, connected presence during difficult moments in our lives.

“With self-compassion, we give ourselves the same kindness and care we'd give to a good friend.”

Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling.  What would it be like to receive the same caring attention from yourself when you needed it the most?  All that’s required is a shift in attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion. Self-compassion is learned, in part, by connecting with our innate compassion and it further expands our capacity to be compassionate with others.

Fortunately, self-compassion can be learned by anyone. After participating in this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Practice self-compassion in daily life
  • Understand the science of self-compassion
  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • Manage caregiver fatigue
  • Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation
