8 Week Course
What would change for you if you could respond to set-backs, disappointments, or difficult emotions (like shame, anxiety, anger, or sadness) with a sense of open-hearted kindness and acceptance, instead of criticism? What would shift if you could become your own greatest support and ally throughout life’s ups and downs?
I completed a week-long intensive in mindfulness self-compassion training under Chris Germer Ph.D. and Kristen Neff Ph.D. sponsored by UC San Diego School of Medicine. I believe that self-compassion is the cornerstone of all change. In knowing this, I have an appreciation for putting it out in the open that there will be frustrations, painful emotions, mistakes and lots of falling short of ideals. To introduce new habits and mindsets, we need to be able to deal with self-defeating language and obstacles in a more productive way.
Are you struggling with self-criticism? Self-judgment? Anxiety? Overwhelming emotions? Paralyzed decision making? Or confusion that leads to debilitating thoughts?
Do you want to embrace a more deeply loving, supportive, content, and meaningful relationship with yourself?

Handle difficult emotions with less pain, suffering, & anxiety

Manage burnout and compassion fatigue
Deepen authentic, satisfying relationships with yourself & others
