Is it time to tame your inner critic? In this practical, half-day workshop we will learn the science and practice of self-compassion, helping us to live a life motivated by kindness rather than criticism.
In an individualistic world, many of us live with a harsh and critical self-attitude that we are not good enough: we should "do better" "be smarter" "achieve more" or "not mess up". We can 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.
In this practical workshop we will learn the science and practice of self-compassion in an informative, interactive, practical and playful way. We will learn:
Why we develop self-critical thoughts
How self-compassion can act as an antidote
How to reconnect with our values
To appreciate our common humanity
To be motivated by kindness and joy
We will leave with the knowledge and skills to be more self compassionate and reap the wellbeing benefits of motivating ourselves through kindness rather than criticism.
This session is facilitated by Dr Jo Mitchell, Clinical Psychologist and Co-Founder of The Mind Room.
