liveWELL Taste of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion
Nov 15, 2021
12:10 PM - 12:50 PM
In this session, we will explore the importance of self-compassion as part of mindfulness practice. Self-compassion involves learning to treat ourselves as we would treat 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.
