Is it time to tame your inner critic? In this practical, half-day workshop we will learn the science and practice of self-compassion, helping us to live a life motivated by kindness rather than criticism.

In an individualistic world, many of us live with a harsh and critical self-attitude that we are not good enough: we should "do better" "be smarter" "achieve more" or "not mess up". We can be compassionate and kind to friends and family, even strangers, but are less familiar and comfortable with being compassionate to ourselves. A lack of self-compassion can take its toll on our physical and mental wellbeing and performance at work, home and in relationships.

In this practical workshop we will learn the science and practice of self-compassion in an informative, interactive, practical and playful way. We will learn:

  • Why we develop self-critical thoughts

  • How self-compassion can act as an antidote

  • How to reconnect with our values

  • To appreciate our common humanity

  • To be motivated by kindness and joy

We will leave with the knowledge and skills to be more self compassionate and reap the wellbeing benefits of motivating ourselves through kindness rather than criticism. 

This session is facilitated by Dr Jo Mitchell, Clinical Psychologist and Co-Founder of The Mind Room.

01 July 2018 • Self Compassion: 1/2 day workshop

This was a truly worthwhile day. It provided a thorough understanding of the concepts that comprise self-compassion as well as practices to be used on an ongoing basis. The small group worked well and Danica, the facilitator, was knowledgable, kind and very helpful. Personally, I loved how interactive it was and that there was almost no reading (we can do that on our own).

This workshop was great. I really appreciated taking the time for myself to understand my thoughts, experiences and my relationship with these and how they impact me. Our class was 6 people + facilitator Danika. Set in a cosy and friendly room on bean bags or chairs, group circle situation. Learning about shared experiences, looking at our values and understanding how we can bring more action into our lives that helps us live by these values. Practicing of mindfulness and meditation, chances to share and discuss thoughts, hand outs on relevant research and how we can better engage with techniques and ways of thinking to encourage self compassion and compassion for others also. Enjoyed the class, it has been on my mind since and I notice it the back of my mind, allowing a kinder and softer space for myself.
