Self-compassion transformed my life, so I'm thrilled to guide you with this nourishing practice which provides more joy, acceptance, and peaceful connections.
Self-compassion is medicine to guide us through challenging times. Instead of criticizing and judging ourselves during difficulties, we choose to comfort ourselves with kindness - the way we would a family member or dear friend. Sadly, many of us believe that berating ourselves will motivate and help us accomplish more - leading to happiness. Research indicates that this simply isn't true. Because our default is to disapprove of ourselves, this habit takes practice and patience.
Following are some of the remarkable benefits of a self-compassion practice:
Decrease anxiety and stress
Enhance physical and emotional well-being
Transform your inner critic with empathy and kindness
Enjoy more peace and calm in your life
Find connection in the beautiful power of group meditation.
"I've always believed that I couldn't meditate because my mind is so busy. Jen's gentle approach shifted my understanding and now after only a few sessions, it feels like it can become a lifelong empowering habit. Jen teaches in such a kind, compassionate, non-judgmental way. Even the most skeptical person will benefit from her open heart and wisdom. I feel deeply grateful to Jen for starting me down this path and helping to guide my journey." Jennifer D.
"I've been meditating on and off for almost two decades, at times for 30 minutes daily, but have been on a break from it for several years. It's something I knew for certain could help me get through craziness, but I have zero willpower and knew I needed structure and guidance. Jen provided both and I am now back on a routine of meditating every other morning. Jen's approach is gentle, sympathetic, intelligent and encouraging. She is the perfect voice to turn to right now." Amy O.
"Stressed, anxious, feel like you are going in circles, and can't stick to one thing? Then I highly recommend Jen Dorf's Meditation and Mindfulness Circle. Her offering helped me focus in a clear, calm manner, and gave me a "center" to my universe. Jen's sessions have helped me better direct my energies in fulfilling my goals." Anne C.
