In this session, we will explore the importance of self-compassion as part of mindfulness practice.  Self-compassion involves learning to treat ourselves as a dear friend.  Mindfulness practice helps us acknowledge the pain and suffering in our lives.  Self-compassion helps us be kind to ourselves in the midst of suffering.  We learn we don’t have to be perfect to be worthy of love and kindness.  By deepening self-compassion, we develop strength, resilience, and wisdom to navigate the storms of life.  For more information, please visit our website at https://hr.uiowa.edu/livewell/livewell-trainings.
