Mindful Self-Compassion Intensive Training

Dec 10 - 15, 2017 Begins in 2 weeks
with Kristin Neff & Christopher Germer

Self-compassion is the heart of mindfulness. It is warm-hearted, connected presence during difficult moments in our lives. Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience that allows us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with encouragement, forgive ourselves when needed, care for others, and be more fully ourselves. 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.

This workshop helps answer this question by providing participants with a theoretical model that integrates attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and separation theory in a manner that can provide a road map for developing and maintaining intimacy.
