    [UG] Self-Compassion: Relating to Oneself and Others through Kindness

    23 SEP 2021
    [UG] Self-Compassion: Relating to Oneself and Others through Kindness

    Life is hard sometimes. We all want to avoid pain, but it is inevitable in human experience. How we respond to our own and others’ pain makes a huge difference when we navigate through life. 

    In this CCL-recognised online workshop, we will talk about what is self-compassion based on Dr. Kristin Neff’s work. Through discussion and simple exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn ways to stop being so hard on yourself; to handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. You can then extend the same kindness to people around you and deepen the connections in your relationships.
