A Second Sunday Seminar, With Erin Galyen

$25 by June 1st and $30 thereafter – Via Zooom
How often do we find it easy to offer compassion to others, but difficult to offer it to ourselves? Cultivating self-compassion allows us to enter our own circles of care by applying the same support, understanding, and kindness we would to a loved one to ourselves. This Second Sunday Seminar will offer opportunities to discuss self-compassion, including how it is being understood and trained in connection with mindfulness. We will also explore practices that can be used to cultivate self-compassion each and every day, finding our own meanings, as well as sharing questions and experiences with each other.
