Self Compassion: 1-day workshop

Next Available: 28 Oct 10:00AM
6.0 hours


Are you a kind and compassionate friend to everyone except yourself? Do you have that critical voice telling you that you should "do better" "be smarter" "achieve more" "not mess up". Welcome to the club - lots of us live with that harsh and critical self-attitude. We can often be compassionate and kind to friends and family, even strangers, but are less familiar and comfortable with being compassionate to ourselves. A lack of self-compassion can take its toll on our physical and mental wellbeing and performance at work, home and in relationships.

The Mind Room team will introduce you to the science and practice of self-compassion, in an informative, interactive, practical and playful way. You will leave with the knowledge and skills to be more self compassionate and reap the wellbeing benefits of motivating yourself through kindness rather than criticism. These classes are also a great way to connect with other people in a relaxed, small group, learning format.

Facilitated by Danica Hade, psychologist.

14 May 2017 • Self Compassion: 1-day workshop

Really valuable class, even if you've done a bit of ACT work already. Danica is a great facilitator and the Mind Room workshop space is wonderful! If this stuff was taught in primary school it would prevent a lot of suffering. 10/10 would recommend for anyone wanting to level up their self compassion game.
