This 8 week course is a journey to greater self acceptance. It is therapeutic but not therapy. It uses mindfulness and meditation but does not require you to already have these skills.

Self-compassion is not soft, weak, self-pitying, self-centred or selfish it is the heart of the truly strong and resilient individual. From self-compassion arises compassion for others, bottomless strength and the freedom to be authentic, to be yourself.

I have been working for the last 8 years towards teaching this course. Learning self-compassion has been the single most healing influence in my life. Three years ago I undertook the self-compassion intensive course for myself with its co-creators Chris Germer and Kristin Neff in the Netherlands. Since then I have been teaching many of the practices in my day to day mindfulness work. Finally, I am going to bring it all together to teach this powerful course for the first time in Beeston, Nottingham. I will create a safe environment to guide you through practices designed to accept yourself just as you are and build greater inner strength.

If you are in any doubt about your levels of self-compassion currently have a go at this test developed by Kristin Neff who has been researching self-compassion for more than a decade.
