Cultivating Compassion for Oneself
at the Heart-Mind 2018 conference,
organized by The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education
Magda will be leading a two-hour break-out session during the conference, from 10:00 am- 12:00 pm, on Saturday, Feb. 24.
The ability to feel compassion for others is part of our human nature. Yet, many people find that when it is time to turn that compassion towards ourselves – it is much more difficult. The intention of this session is to provide a few insights as to why that might be the case, what are the benefits of maintaining an attitude of self-compassion and to offer a few suggestions for practical and science-based strategies for cultivating self-compassion.
The session will draw on the curriculum of the 8-week program called Compassion Cultivation Training developed at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University.
