Self-compassion in stressful times
When: November 24th, 2019
Where: Yogaloft Luxembourg-Kirchberg
Although the holiday season is the most beautiful season of the year, for most of us, it is also the most stressful; so many people to see, so many gifts to buy, so many parties to go to and/or to host, so many expectations to fullfill…or, on the other hand, so many people to miss, so much loneliness sometimes, and so many other emotions to go through.
How about this year, you start the season with an early Christmas gift to yourself and learn how to be more self-compassionate during stressful times?
What does it mean to be more self-compassionate? It really means being kinder to yourself and instead of mercilessly judging, criticizing and punishing yourself for various inadequacies or shortcomings, you are kind and understanding towards yourself when confronted with personal ‘failings’ – after all, who ever said you were supposed to be perfect?
Did you know that there is a science of self-compassion and that self-compassion can be learned? There is extensive scientific research on the topic and in this workshop, you will not only learn what it really means to be self-compassionate, you will learn specific exercises and tools that you can apply when times get tough and you’re being too hard on yourself, not just during the Christmas season.
Just bring yourself, comfortable clothes and a little notebook and pen. There will be a talk on self-compassion and then lots of practical exercises followed by a Q&A session.
