We are uniquely qualified to give ourselves what we have always wished for from another. Self-Compassion feels like coming home to a world that we have always wanted: accepting, attuned – a world of warmth in and for ourselves. We will practice opening to pain and courage as we meet our internal difficulties with steadfastness and love.
This class teaches loving self-talk, disengaging from the Inner Critic, and mindfulness. These skills are demonstrated to improve self-compassion. Activities include small group sharing, psychological inquiry, meditation, chanting, somatic awareness, and enjoying our own goodness! Participants will do a few minutes of daily follow-up at home in order to develop and personalize skills. Class participation includes the option to schedule one private session to explore self-compassion with Andy Bayliss at a 50% discount (=$50 to $25 sliding scale, 1 hour session).
