Full Description

When you treat others with compassion, you experience a deep sense of connection and love. It just flows so freely from your heart. Yet when was the last time you extended that same compassion to yourself? The Power of Self-Compassion will teach you how to practice this life-changing skill. 

Why is self-compassion so important? An ever-increasing body of research shows that it is essential to our emotional health. It can truly transform your life by enabling you to: 

  • grow in kindness toward yourself—a foundation for facing life’s many challenges
  • build resilience and strength when in distress or emotional turmoil
  • heal the wounds of self-criticism, trauma, self-doubt, and shame
  • find new meaning and fulfillment in your life, even if you are currently struggling
  • improve relationships with partners, friends, and others by giving yourself what you need
  • be a better caregiver for your children, aging parents, and clients

Since 2010, Dr. Chris Germer and Dr. Kristin Neff have been testing and refining strategies to help people develop self-compassion as a lifelong habit. The result is this deeply regarded course that has helped thousands of people practice this essential skill.

The course consists of eight online sessions that include in-depth learning, home practices, workbook activities, and a wealth of guided meditations to help you nurture self-compassion. It also includes live Q&A sessions with Chris and Kristin and live monthly group mentoring calls. 

Join Kristin and Chris and learn to:

  • Cultivate lovingkindness toward yourself
  • Face your pain with courage and acceptance
  • Understand the proven science of self-compassion
  • Motivate yourself with compassion rather than criticism
  • Bring your core values into fulfilling actions
  • Stay resilient when faced with emotional difficulties
  • Care for others without losing yourself
  • Feel more grateful and fulfilled every day

 The Power of Self-Compassion truly has the ability to redefine your life.

The Power of Self Compassion

This is well done. I appreciate the presentations rotated between Kristin and Chris. The two compliment one another and both have very pleasant voices. Excellent and very helpful information to receive and practice.

Thank you!

Insightful and helpful

I appreciated the presentations, particularly, the compassion seen from a masculine perspective. This was very new for me.

I would have liked more content. I found the meditations repetitive and not as useful for me.

Overall, I consider that going through the course helped me to deal with my strong inner judge.
