Self-compassion for Challenging times

During this retreat we will explore the aspects of self-compassion and apply the 3 key components of self-compassion to cultivate a kinder attitude towards ourselves. We will explore some of the myths around self-compassion and look at what the science and research says. Self compassion provides emotional strength and resilience to face life’s challenges, to motivate ourselves and embrace what it means to be fully human with kindness.
