About the Event

About the Group:

This 6-week group provides you with exposure to mindfulness and self-compassion knowledge, skills, and practices in a briefer form. It is based on the full 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion group, with more of an emphasis on practical teachings and tools to manage daily stressors.

This group will help you to be able to:

  • Practice self-compassion in daily life
  • Use mindfulness and self-compassion meditation and behavioural practices for grounding to manage overwhelm
  • Understand the empirically-supported benefits of self-compassion
  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • Manage caregiver fatigue and burnout

Group activities include short talks, experiential exercises, group and small group discussion, and home practices.
