Self Compassion 101

Self Compassion 101Self Compassion 101 – befriending your inner critic

Dozens of other experts believe cultivating self compassion is a corner stone to building a happy life.

WHY? If you don’t have compassion for yourself, you most likely judge yourself harshly, allowing your inner critic to rule you like a dictator. This may set off a cycle of alternating between living life under the hard, merciless drive of your inner dictator and the self indulgence and procrastination of your inner rebel child. Are you struggling to achieve your goals? Are you stuck in a cycle of self sabotage? Are you driving yourself into the ground?

Can you imagine a life in which you are your own best friend – an inner dialogue with kind and encouraging words, motivating you to do better because it is good for you, and not because you fear something? Whereby you no longer need to rebel against your own goals? Where you spend more time in a calm state?

Based on the latest research, lessons and readings from all key experts in the field of psychology, Buddhism, and coaching, this four part Self compassion 101 course will provide you with a useful introduction to self compassion. In order to achieve this new way of living – thriving not only surviving – we will explore what is driving you, why and how to change gears. The course will also help you start a new habit and take the first few steps towards this new experience of self compassion. The beginning of ‘ending the war’ with yourself.
