Explore how compassion can transform your life with this online weekly course.
The definition of compassion is the ability to understand the emotional state of another person or oneself and the desire to help the person who is suffering.
Self- compassion isn’t about liking yourself when you become a better person, self compassion is about liking yourself as you are.
It is befriending yourself now Not when you’re perfect, or when you’re a size 10, or no longer…..it’s becoming a friend to yourself now.
And the GOOD News is that it’s a skill.
It can be learnt and practiced, and like going to the gym, the more that your practice it the better you will become at it and the easier it will be.
Compassion helps you to support yourself, accept yourself as you are, and celebrate your accomplishments.
Also gives you coping skills and you will find that as you cultivate compassion for yourself, you will automatically want to give to others in a much more selfless and meaningful way.
Over the course of the 4 weeks we will cover lots of topics such as:
I am a qualified Biochemist from Trinity College, Dublin and over the past 15 years I have read, studied and practiced mindfulness. I have trained with some of the leading experts, gone on retreats all over the world and held some of my own. I have also worked teaching 8 week mindfulness courses in the community, in companies and as a 1:1.
I am passionate about mindfulness as I can honestly say that it has changed my life! I know that can sound very OTT at times and it wasn’t this sudden flash of light that came down and I was enlightened, sitting lotus position, emanating love (wouldn’t that be wonderful!) No, it was over time and with patience and commitment I found that old behaviours that didn’t serve me well melted away, negative beliefs no longer held me captive and I wasn’t a victim of my emotions (finally!)
The changes were incremental and yet they were very obvious once I became aware of them. I actually began to feel more comfortable within myself which I never thought possible having suffered with depression for most of my life. With that everything changed for the better.
What if I miss a week?
All the classes are recorded and uploaded to a Dropbox folder each week. This is shared with class participants so that they can catch up in their own time.
Is anything asked of me, that is, will I have to speak or contribute?
I do ask for a short check in at the beginning of every day. This is optional each week so if you’d prefer not to speak or be on camera that is absolutely fine with me. The check in is literally to see how you got on with the weeks recommendations and how I can help you with your mindfulness experience
What if I have a question but I don’t want to ask it via Zoom?
I encourage all participants to contact me via email or phone during the course with any mindfulness questions and queries, I’m always more than happy to help.
