The Power of Self-Compassion

Welcome to part 2 of our 3-part self-compassion event sneak peek!! With only one week to go to the self-compassion event of the year, we're bringing you behind-the-scenes of our April 27th afternoon workshop with amazing keynote speaker Dr. Kristin Neff. 

Before stepping into the great hall at The Cedars Ranch to participate in her life-changing workshop "The Power of Self-Compassion", let's take a moment to introduce you to Dr. Neff.

Introducing You To Dr. Kristin Neff

Dr. Kristin Neff is a world-renowned pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion over a decade ago. She is currently an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to writing numerous academic articles and book chapters on the topic of self-compassion, she is author of the book Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself. In conjunction with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, she has developed an empirically supported eight-week training program called Mindful Self-Compassion, which is taught by thousands of teachers worldwide. Drs. Neff and Germer recently published a workbook based on their training program, the Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, which is an Amazon Bestseller and the #1 New Release in Social Work. 

To get a glimpse into the feel and tone of our afternoon workshop with Dr. Neff, click on the YouTube video below to watch her ground-breaking TEDx Talk on the difference between self-esteem and self-compassion, viewed by well over 1 million people ...

Learn How To Live A Happier, More Fulfilling Life

"This workshop at The Cedars Ranch will provide simple tools for responding in a kind, compassionate way whenever we are experiencing painful emotions. We all want to avoid pain but letting it in—and responding compassionately to our own imperfections without harsh self-condemnation—are essential steps toward living happier, more fulfilling lives." - Dr. Kristin Neff

You will learn how to stop being so hard on yourself; motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism; and how to care for others without losing yourself." ~ Dr. Kristin Neff
