Mindfulness and Self Compassion

Event by Sunshine Community Health Center

Price: Free

Public ยท Anyone on or off Facebook
Sunshine Community Health Centerโ€™s Kirsten Strolle, LMSW is offering an online workshop about Mindfulness and Self-Compassion.

Mindfulness is a skill that allows a person to notice and accept their own complex thoughts and feelings with openness and curiosity, including difficult emotions like anger, sadness, frustration, self-doubt, etc. Mindfulness is one of the first steps in emotional healing.

Self-compassion involves responding to these complex thoughts and feelings with kindness, empathy, and understanding, making it possible for people to comfort themselves when they are hurting. Research shows that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It reduces anxiety and depression, boosts happiness, and can even give people a boost when maintaining healthy lifestyle habits like diet and exercise. Other benefits include increasing motivation, boosting happiness, enhancing self-worth, and increasing resilience during lifeโ€™s challenges.

This workshop will contain meditations, cover different topics to enhance mindfulness and self-compassion, discussions, and practice exercises. There are about thirty minutes a day of home practice during the workshop to deepen and strengthen the mindfulness practices and to increase self-compassion.

When: Tuesdays, October 19th โ€“ December 7th

Where: Zoom at home or virtually at your local clinic

Potential Benefits: Increasing motivation, boosting happiness, enhancing self-worth, and increasing resilience during lifeโ€™s challenges.

What to Expect: This is an experiential workshop with meditations, activities, and discussion. There are about thirty minutes a day of home practice during the workshop.

New Patients: If you are new to the Sunshine Community Health Center, you will need to complete new patient paperwork. A person from the clinic will call you to help you with this process or you can go to your local clinic and fill out paperwork. This is an essential part of enrollment.
