Expand your knowledge of self-compassion
Self-Compassion 102 builds on the learning of Self-Compassion 101. Now that participants have an introduction to self-compassion, we can go a bit deeper. In this workshop hosted by the BC Council for Families, participants will look at stress, overwhelm, burnout, and what leads us to these bigger breaks. As the saying goes: “You don’t have to have a breakdown to have a break”.
Through the practice of self-compassion, we will explore ways for participants to learn their warning signs of burnout. We will talk about expressing needs (including how we think we are doing this yet may not be), setting healthy boundaries, and through interactive exercises, will continue to build on our newly acquired skills.
We will also learn about “backdraft”, the concept that when we open ourselves to self-compassion we can experience and open ourselves up to old wounds. Participants will acquire strategies and tools to equip themselves for dealing with backdraft.
