Presenter: Marie Hobbs
Topic: An Introduction to Self Compassion
Mindfulness and self-compassion are not just skills but when practiced regularly become a way of life. If we can learn to motivate ourselves from a place of inner stillness and kindness maybe we become more authentic, calm and responsive. We’ve become too used to listening to the harsh self-critic that so often drowns out our wiser, quieter voice. Learning to pay attention in a more balanced way can mean we make decisions that are more closely aligned to the way we really want to live and more resilient to the stresses of the modern world. Marie hopes you will join her for this introduction evening to experience the difference that mindful self-compassion can bring to your life.
