Im a failure. What an idiot I am. Im just no good at this.
How often do we speak to ourselves in a way we never would to our loved ones, or our best friends? We think that in being our own harshest critic we will beat others to the punch and hold off the pain of criticism. We think this is best way to motivate ourselves to do better.
But our brains just arent wired to work this way. The more we practice self-criticism, the worse things tend to get.
The antidote? Self-compassion. This is not some woo-woo skill that gives us a get-out-jail-free card. Self-compassion is a robust practice, thoroughly grounded in neurobiology. It is practice that provides all the benefits of high self-esteem with none of the drawbacks of arrogance or selfishness.
In this workshop, participants will:
Get clear on self-compassion truths and myths
Learn how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
Learn to motivate yourself with kindness rather than self-criticism
Learn practical self-compassion practices so you can start to unlock your true potential
Prior to the workshop, there will be an optional, 15-minute *free* self-compassion assessment to help you maximize your workshop time and learn the practices that best suit your needs.
