About the Event

Have you been struggling to find self-warmth? Does your critical inner self go crazy on you when you make mistakes? Do you have days that start off feeling fine, then you suddenly fall into a pit of shame? Perhaps you even struggle to connect with the words “self-compassion”.

Self-Love may seem like a cliché at times, but what if you could transform this perceived “myth” into a reality? What if you could increase your capacity for self-care and discover more ways to enjoy your life in a sustainable and creative way?

If you’d like to transform your life with tenderness, courage, and self confidence, this might be the year-long practice space for you. Participants will learn to:

  • Ignite your self compassion
  • Invite more joy into your life in new creative ways
  • Break through old patterns of self sabotage
  • Nestle yourself in radical self warmth

Join Mary, Arnina, and Sarah for a slow-paced, deep, and heartfelt 13-month exploration into the power of RADICAL self-compassion. The gems within this course will help you to reclaim your birthright of a trusting, self-rooted presence in the world.
