Join me for a free one-hour class
on Wed. Mar. 22 from 6-7 pm
to explore a topic that benefits all of us – and is gaining greater acceptance – because it works. There is abundant research to show that people who are more self-compassionate have greater health, better relationships and more resilience to life’s stressors. This is not simply using positive affirmations or pollyanna thinking
, in part it is learning to relate to and treat ourselves as kindly as we would a good friend.
I’ll share evidence-based strategies to help you combat negative chatter and unhelpful self-criticism. You’ll learn ways to catch and curb harmful self-talk and faulty cognitive distortions such as “catastrophizing”, fortune-telling, overgeneralization, and all or nothing thinking, etc. You will leave the class equipped with information you can begin using immediately.
And, if you haven’t had a chance to visit the beautiful Center for Health and Wellbeing, you’re in for a treat. The serene setting offers free, easy parking and an on-site cafe if you wish to get a smoothie or a snack before class starts (food and drink welcome in the class too). I look forward to seeing you and hopefully to helping you on your journey toward greater wellbeing.
