When we see a friend or even a stranger in crisis or pain, most of us are pretty good at extending our compassion. But when we ourselves are suffering, too often we neglect to give the same kindness to ourselves.
For over a decade, Chris Germer, PhD, and Kristin Neff, PhD have been at the forefront of research into self-compassion, investigating its many dimensions, benefits, and ways to strengthen it.
The good news is that anyone can learn to access this inner ally.
What happens when we cultivate self-compassion? A solid body of ever-expanding scientific evidence reveals that highly self-compassionate people are:
- More motivated and productive
- Less self-critical, anxious, and depressed
- More self-confident
- More resilient and persistent when they fail
- Happier and more satisfied
- More curious, creative, and innovative
- More supportive of others
Could you use more of these “positives” in your life? This immersive eight-week online course with Kristin Neff, PhD, and Chris Germer, PhD, will show you the way.
