Compassion is good is for us. A compassionate lifestyle has been linked to well-being and health. Self-compassion is being kind to yourself as you would be with a dear friend. It has been associated with greater resilience and less anxiety and depression. For most of us, however, self-compassion doesn’t come as easily as we might like. Fortunately, it’s possible to cultivate compassion with practice. We’ll review research and do experiential exercises to explore why compassion and self-compassion are healthy and fulfilling ways of relating.

Instructor: Bob Horowitz, MD, is a primary care internist and a longtime meditator. He teaches Mindful Self-Compassion at El Camino Hospital and has been developing a self-compassion training program for physician well-being at the Stanford School of Medicine.
