Well-Being and Self-Compassion: Caring for Ourselves to Care for Others

This presentation draws upon recent findings in neuroscience and psychology, illuminating self-care and spiritual practices that nurture gentleness, kindness and patience towards ourselves.

These practices help soften the tendency to be self-critical when we make mistakes or notice our imperfections. Far from being self-centered or selfish, these actions generate deeper understanding of others, enhancing our relationships and our ability to care for others.

Helpful tips and exercises on how to practice self-compassion will be included in this multimedia presentation. We will also discover that being compassionate towards ourselves helps reduce stress and inflammation while slowing aging in our cells and our brains.

This workshop is approved for .4 CEUs (four Contact Hours) through the University of Wisconsin—Parkside Continuing Education.
