Description

Self-Compassion for the Holidays: Moving from Dread to Joy
A three-class series taught by Laura Martin, Mindfulness Teacher
Tuesdays 6:00 - 7:30pm ~ November 5, 12, and 19, 2019

Here it comes: The Holiday Season! The lists, the expectations, the busy schedule, the obligations, the money, the food, the events, the people! Help! At a time of year when we long for warmth and togetherness, the pressure and busyness of the holidays can be overwhelming. Our best intentions can get hijacked by expectations from others and ourselves. Everything around us looks sparkly, what if we don’t feel that way?

Self-compassion is practice that helps us connect with ourselves during even the busiest times. So many of us are compassionate with others, but are unfamiliar with turning this generosity towards ourselves.

Self-compassion practices are both evidence-based and rooted in ancient wisdom traditions. The themes of each class help us move from being busy to being present.

Class One This is our space for noticing: Finding our place in the moment.
Class Two
This is the human experience: Connecting to humanity.
Class Three
This is self-compassion: Living self-kindness in real life.

Give yourself a gift this holiday season; one that will benefit everyone around you. Take with you into the season:

  • Mindfulness practice skills
  • Moving from self-criticism to kindness
  • How self-compassion is anything but selfish
  • Living in connectedness

There is no substitute for exploring mindfulness and self-compassion in the company of others on the same journey. I look forward to welcoming you to the class.

Early bird registration rate: $150, through October 31. $165 thereafter.

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
~The Dalai Lama
