Developing Self-Compassion Through Mindful Meditation

Do you struggle with self-criticism or low self-esteem? Self-compassion is the ability to be kind, accepting, and supportive to yourself in times of stress or distress. Research has shown that increased levels of self-compassion are related to life satisfaction, social connectedness, and lower stress levels. This 8-week course will teach you skills to be more caring, kind and compassionate to yourself. You will learn how to use mindfulness meditation skills to disengage from self-critical thought patterns and develop a healthier, friendlier inner voice.

In this 8-week course you will learn mindfulness meditation skills to:

  • Reduce self-criticism
  • Increase feelings of self-kindness and self-acceptance
  • Increase present-moment awareness
