Mindful Self-Compassion Intensive Training

Dec 10 - 15, 2017 Begins in 9 months

Rapidly expanding research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships.
