Self-Compassion and Mindfulness Workshop

Join our counsellors Kristi and Katie for a workshop to learn more about how to practice self-compassion and mindfulness. The combined skills of mindfulness and self-compassion are a powerful tool for emotional resilience. Mindfulness is being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts with a spirit of openness and curiosity. Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness and sympathy.

Through teaching, group discussion, meditation, and experiential exercises, this workshop teaches practical skills to help bring self-compassion and mindfulness into our daily lives. Join us at this workshop to learn:

* the basics of mindfulness and self-compassion,

* how to stop being so hard on yourself,

* how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease,

* how to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism, and

* mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life.
