Self-Compassion Workshop Zurich

November 18 @ 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM UTC+3
120CHF

How do you typically react to life’s difficulties or to your own mistakes and imperfections? If you are highly self-critical, what are the consequences of being so hard on yourself?
The latest studies in psychology and neuroscience reveal that self-compassion is the ground of all emotional healing.

Self-criticism only sabotages us and produces a variety of negative consequences. When we respond with compassion to our own imperfections – without judgment or self-blame – we make essential steps on the path to healing and genuine happiness.

Self-compassion is the heart of mindfulness, and self-compassion skills help us be kind and caring toward ourselves rather than being critical and judgmental. It allows us feel connected to others when we suffer, rather than feeling isolated and alone. Unlike self-esteem, the good feelings of self-compassion do not depend on being special and better than other people; instead, they come from caring about ourselves and recognizing that we all go through difficult times and it’s only human to get distressed on occasion.

Topics to be addressed:
– Self-compassion definition and research data;
– The difference between self-compassion and self-pity, self-indulgence, or self-esteem;
– Learning to treat yourself with the same kindness, caring, and compassion you would show to a good friend;
– Meditative practices on self-compassion and loving-kindness;
– Simple tools for giving yourself the support you need whenever you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate.
– Sharing and questions.

The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently. Pema Chödrön

Cushions and mats are available. Refreshments will be served during the break. No previous experience needed.
