Many of us have come to believe that being too kind to ourselves will make us weak or self-indulgent—and that we need to be tough on ourselves to reach our goals. In fact, over a decade of research shows that mindful self-compassion makes us stronger, not weaker. With this in-depth live audio program, you'll join two pioneers in the fields of mindfulness and self-compassion to explore the latest research on the benefits of these complementary skills, how kind awareness transforms our present moment experiences, and a wealth of guided practices to shift our deep emotional and cognitive responses from self-defeating to more capable, courageous, loving, and resilient.
