Mindfulness and Self Compassion

Mindfulness and Self Compassion

Would you like to learn how to meditate and be present with yourself and take the time to stop and slow down?

Mindfulness and Self Compassion can be described as skills we can learn to be more aware and engaged with what’s happening in the day-to-day moments, rather than being caught up in our worries and concerns.

In this introductory series with Suzanne Peyton, a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher of nearly 20 years, you’ll learn ways to help you:

  • Steady the mind and calm the body
  • Feel less overwhelmed
  • Treat yourself with more kindness and gentleness
  • Respond to, rather than react, to life’s challenges

The program covers Mindfulness in week one, and Self-Compassion in week two. You can choose to follow it sequentially, exploring a new practice each day, or you can simply experiment with whatever most appeals to you, and continue to practice those ones.

Like learning an instrument, with practice these skills will build over time, so enjoy the experience of nourishing yourself in this program.

“You may not be able to stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf them.”
