Self Compassion and Empowerment Series
February 26 @ 10:00 - 12:00
I have found self-compassion to be one of the keys to well-being. As I grew more compassionate towards myself I found more inner peace, presence and surprisingly, more empowerment. Being compassionate does not mean always being soft and giving. It means having your own back with love and kindness. Being your own best friend. And when we have that kind of support and understanding in our lives it can help us to step forward with courage and to care for ourselves in our daily lives, in our work and in our relationships.
Once the compassion for self starts to flow we can begin to get curious about others and what might be going on for them and that helps to nurture our relationships too.
This series is for you if you would like to be kinder to yourself, become your own best friend, understand yourself better and stand in your own power.
“It’s important to distinguish self-compassion from self-esteem. Self-esteem refers to the degree to which we evaluate ourselves positively. It represents how much we like or value ourselves, and is often based on comparisons with others. In contrast, self-compassion is not based on positive judgments or evaluations, it is a way of relating to ourselves. People feel self-compassion because they are human beings, not because they are special and above average. It emphasizes interconnection rather than separateness. This means that with self-compassion, you don’t have to feel better than others to feel good about yourself. It also offers more emotional stability than self-esteem because it is always there for you – when you’re on top of the world and when you fall flat on your face”. Dr Kristin Neff
