The Power of Self-Compassion Course
Online
Wednesday, June 3, 2020 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Ages: Adults
Registration and more information
Self-compassion involves treating oneself as one would a friend, being more mindful, and understanding our situation in the context of a larger human experience. When we can be more understanding and gentler with ourselves, identify less with the emotions that surround our mistakes, and understand that failure is a normal part of the larger human experience, we become stronger and more successful in the long run. We become stronger and more resilient. And, as Sri Sri Ravi Shankar so simply puts it, the state of your life depends on the state of your mind. So be kind to yourself. This is a 4-week class. Please register for each class to ensure that you receive the Zoom link each week.
