Whilst many of us find it natural to offer compassion towards others, we may struggle to offer the same sense of kindness and tenderness to ourselves, especially when life brings challenges and failures. In fact, self-criticism and judgment can reduce our ability to experience joy in everyday life - and even hold us back from achieving our personal goals.

In this workshop, you will learn how to cultivate more personal space for loving awareness and self-kindness in your daily life, thus enhancing our capacity for emotional well-being and building resilience. With a spirt of openness and tenderness, you will stop being so hard on yourself but motivate and encourage yourself with greater ease and confidence.
