About The Event
January Mini-Retreat: Self-Compassion for the New Year
Before you make any New Year's resolutions, start with a commitment to relate to yourself with more compassion, friendliness, and understanding. Research finds that self-compassion helps us change habits and sustain positive change over itme.
"One study on smokers showed that practicing self-compassion helped them quit (Kelly 2010). Another recent study on people with eating disorders showed that increasing self-compassion helped improve eating habits (Gale 2014). These results demonstrate that mindfulness, understanding, acceptance and kindness toward yourself are effective ways to accomplish your resolutions."
In this three-hour mini-retreat participants will:
- learn the 3 components of self-compassion
- engage in guided meditations designed to increase mindfulnes and self-compassion
- explore a change in habit using a self-compassionate, rather than self-critical approach
Mats, cushions, blankets, chairs and floor chairs are available for use. You are welcome to bring your own mat and/or cushion if you have them. You may want to bring a journal for written reflection. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a light jacket if you tend to get cool. Please be considerate of others who may have a sensitivity to strong scents (perfumes, essential oils, scented lotions) by avoiding strongly-scented products. Pre-registration is required.
