Mindfulness is a powerful tool that can help you live with greater calm and balance. When we practice mindfulness, we cultivate self-care skills that are essential for human living. This class teaches principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. The three key components of self-compassion are: self-kindness, a sense of connection to humanity, and mindful awareness. Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can give ourselves what we need. Register.
