Course Description:

As humans, compassion is one of the things that binds us together, making it possible for us to overcome hardship. Compassion enables us to recognize pain and compels us to do something to help. With this innate skill, most of us take great care of others. However, many of us do not afford this same care, patience, and support to ourselves during times of struggle. In this session called, Compassion, you will see that your compassion is not complete unless it includes yourself. We will guide you through Affectionate Breathing, Soothing Touch, and Self-Compassion Break practices. By the end of the session, you will have the tools to transform how you treat yourself in the face of difficulty, empowering you to bounce back from life’s challenges with yourself as an inner ally.   
"I was certainly raised to think that any kind of compassion or break you gave yourself was at the least, weak and at the worst selfish or lazy.  My yoga practice and interest in mindfulness has helped me to realize that far from being selfish, self-compassion is often the boost needed to keep going strong for yourself and others."
