Abstract

This presentation will explore several questions:

  • What is self-compassion?
  • What is its lineage in contemplative traditions?
  • How is self-compassion cultivated in mindfulness-based interventions?
  • What can we learn from research?
  • How do mindfulness teachers learn embodiment through working with their "inner critic."

It will draw on theory, contemplative traditions, clinical examples (including DVD) and research.
