MINDFUL SELF-COMPASSION SKILLS WEEKEND
FRIDAY 21 6PM to 4PM SUNDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2018
Tough inner critic? Learn to Tame them with Mindful Self-Compassion.
Many of us have a touch inner critic sitting on our shoulder, berating us at times, reminding us of when we stuffed up, dragging us back into the past, affecting our self-esteem and confidence in now and in the future.
Come away and enjoy two days away in Whangamata with like-minded people learning Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) which combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience.
Learn the three components of Self-Compassion:
1. Self-Kindness vs Self-Judgment
Learn to treat yourself with kindness, care, understanding and support, just like you would treat a good friend. However we often treat ourselves much more harshly than this, saying cruel things to ourselves which we would never say to our friends.
2. Common Humanity vs Isolation
With self-compassion we can see our we are not the only one who mucks up at times and realise others do too, it is normal. The challenge with social media these days is it looks like everyone else's life is always amazing... reality is often different.
3. Mindfulness vs Over-Identification
In order to realise we are being too harsh on ourselves we first need to become aware we are doing it. Mindfulness helps us to stop, be in the moment, reflect and realise how we are feeling and what is causing it. Awareness is the first step to changing behaviour
Learning to treat yourself with Self-Kindness has many benefits, including:
capacity to handle difficult situations and emotions with greater ease because you feel better about yourself
being able to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism, so much kinder
handling challenging relationships better because you are in a good head space
increasing resilience through awareness and as a result preventing burn-out
which will result in finding more joy and happiness in daily life
Research shows self-compassion enhances emotional well-being, boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and helps maintain healthy lifestyle habits. The great news is that Self-Compassion is a skill that can be learned which helps us to feel happier, more at ease and can improve health.
This can be done through the practice of accepting what’s going on in our life and repeatedly being kind to ourselves and others. Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a powerful remedy for depression, anxiety and stress, enabling you to live with greater ease, connection and joy.
Come and join us in Whangamata 6 pm Friday 21 September to 4 pm Sunday 23 September where you will get a MSC workbook and delicious vegetarian lunch both days.

The reason I became a teacher in Mindful
Self-Compassion is the two programmes
I did on it really helped me deal with my
self-judgement, feeling of isolation and
over-identification with my sons autism challenges.
