What is Cultivating Self Compassion?
Cultivating Self Compassion is a support group for students to explore and develop self compassion practices that will help them meet challenges with more kindness, care, and understanding.
If you experience self-criticism, low self-worth, perfectionism, burnout, low self-motivation, challenging relationships, and difficulties managing stress, consider joining this support group.
How does it work?
We will explore topics such as:
- managing difficult emotions
- cultivating gratitude
- core values
Group activities include discussions, experiential exercises, meditation and at-home practices.
Where does it take place?
Sessions will take place over Zoom.
