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.
