The Art and Practice of Self Compassion
Led by Taylor White Moffitt

Self esteem is a sense of we are ok as we are, self compassion is the tool for when we doubt this. Being human means that we often struggle in responding to ourselves with kindness, we can lack understanding and respect for our humanity and often feel unsteady or unlovable. Self compassion is a tool of generosity that need not be earned but just simply and generously applied as first aid relief for almost all suffering.
For 5 weeks we will work with the 3 primary components of self compassion (Neff, 2003)
Self Kindness vs. Self Judgement
Common humanity vs. Isoaltion
Mindfulness vs. Overidentification
Together we will deconstruct our fight/flight/freeze mechanisms that take us out of the present moment and up into our minds. We will increase our coping abilities, our resilience and our sturdiness as peaceful and compassionate human beings. Join us for a 5 week class that will include asana, meditation, journaling, inquiry circles and discussions on the topic that offers the most healing for each self compassion.
Please wear comfortable clothes for a short vinyasa asana practice, a journal and pen and water to each session.
