About the Masterclass

Since the publication of Kristin Neff's ground-breaking book Self-Compassion, there has been a surge of interest in the science and practice of self-compassion, particularly in clinical settings. But that has often focused on the tender, nurturing aspect of self-compassion, which involves being with ourselves with warm acceptance. But self-compassion can be fierce as well as tender.

Fierce self-compassion involves taking action in the world to protect, provide and motivate ourselves to alleviate our suffering. It means saying no to others who are hurting us - drawing our boundaries firmly. It means giving ourselves what we genuinely need - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually - without subordinating our needs to those of others, so we can be authentic and fulfilled. And it means motivating ourselves to reach our goals or make needed changes in our lives.

This unique masterclass will teach skills of fierce and tender self-compassion, helping us to find healthy balance in our lives. There will be a satisfying mix of experiential learning and science-based insights.
