Learning to be kind to ourselves can sometimes feel like a monumental task. We are often our own harshest judge. In this experiential workshop, we will explore the mindfulness practice of Loving Kindness and learn how to use it in our daily lives. Through simple, brief practices, we can begin to soften our own self-judgment and build our internal capacity for self-compassion, expanding our access to joy and ease in our everyday lives. Building our internal capacity for self-kindness and self-compassion supports our ability to create calm, focused, empathic attention when faced with stress, trauma, or another's pain. It makes us stronger and more resilient in the face of challenges.
