Cultivating Self-Compassion

Cultivating Self Compassion
Fernanda Villanueva (MSW, RSW)

 

This course is all about fostering a sense of gentleness and softness in the way that you talk to yourself and care for yourself. If you have been catching yourself being really critical, feel completely out of touch with your wants/needs, and in need of deep restoration, you are gonna love this course.

 

Because in this series, you will learn how to create a space where you can cultivate more kindness, understanding, and self-compassion in your life.

 

Here is all the cool stuff you will experiment within this course:

Module One: We will review the importance of mindfulness, and how to catch mindful moments if meditating for 30 minutes a day seems laughable to you right now. You will be guided through a quick and easy mindfulness meditation.

Module Two: We will examine elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and how you can begin challenging self-critical thoughts. You will get some concrete strategies for quieting down that mean voice in your head that whispers (or sometimes yells) cruel and untrue things.

Module Three: We will take a look at ways to incorporate self-care into your life and begin creating some more space for you. Don’t worry – this isn’t about taking more bubble baths. You will brainstorm what brings you pleasure and create strategies to connect with pleasure able and restorative moments more often.

Module Four: We will discuss boundaries and the importance of learning how to create them and set them with those around you. Learn how to connect with your ‘no’ and your ‘yes’, as well as how to communicate your no/yes with those around you in little and big ways.
