Resilency through Self-Compassion: A Contemplative Approach
All too often, the demands of the workplace, higher education and/or family life (meeting the needs of children, aging parents or family members in health crisis), can lead to physical and emotional exhaustion—the hallmarks of burnout. Others may suffer from feelings of isolation and loneliness or anxiety around personal and global events. All of these stresses take a toll on physical, psychological and spritual health, both for those experiencing these feelings and those offering support. This workshop offers practical tools for improving one's resilience in the face of the inevitable ups and downs of life, grounded in both science and the ancient wisdom of contemplative practice. While exploring the links between self-compassion and resilience, the workshop will incorporate activities and discussion while teaching specific contemplative practices.  With insights adapted from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and based in the principles of CBCT® (Cogntively-Base Compassions Training), we will focus on viewing our human limitations with greater kindness while cultivating the skills to lead a happier and less stressful life.

Cost: $30 to cover expenses: plus, Dana (donation) for the Teacher

​The fee for the retreat does not cover the time and efforts of the teacher. You will have the opportunity to express your acknowledgement and appreciation by offering Dana to Carol Beck at the retreat.
