Anyone can become more self-compassionate. We can cultivate self-compassion with contemplative practices like meditation and also by simple acts of kindness in response to stress. What are common obstacles to practice? What are two hidden factors that determine whether self-compassion practice will succeed or not? Participants will learn key principles and practices to bring self-compassion seamlessly into their lives.
