This one-day introductory, educational and experiential workshop will provide information on how practices based on mindful self-compassion can prevent burnout and cultivate wellness and resiliency.
This day consists of lecture-style teachings on compassion fatigue, the physiology and research supporting mindful self-compassion and the differences between mindfulness vs. self-compassion, empathy vs. compassion, and self-esteem vs. self-compassion.
It is said that mindful self-compassion is ‘caught more than taught.’ Accordingly, this workshop includes multiple guided practices using intentional use of breath, attention and visualization, touch and phrases followed by guided inquiry and small and large group discussions. You will leave with practical approaches and tips on how to integrate mindful self-compassion into your professional and personal life.
Please wear comfortable clothing, be prepared with any needed props (i.e., mat or pillow) and find a quiet and confidential space (if possible) to support your engagement in mindful self-compassion practice.
