Self-Compassion with Kristin Neff & Brené Brown

Why are we so often our own toughest critic? Why do we talk to ourselves in ways that we would never consider speaking to others? Self-compassion, learning to understand and calm our inner critic, is central to living a brave life as a partner, friend, parent, and leader. The Self-Compassion workshop combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our capacity for courage and emotional wellbeing.

This four-lesson online workshop, co-facilitated by Drs. Kristin Neff and Brené Brown, provides valuable, research-based tools that can help us integrate self-compassion into our daily lives. Together, we will walk through exercises that teach us to be compassionate and kind not only to others in their times of struggle, but also to ourselves.

There are no prerequisites for this workshop. If you've already taken the Living Brave Semester and are interested in learning more about self-compassion, this is a great way to develop a self-compassion practice in a more focused way.
