How to Stop Beating Yourself Up: New York Insight Meditation Center

bodhiBodhipaksa will be in New York City on Nov 22, 2014. He’s leading a self-compassion workshop at the New York Insight Meditation Center: “How to Stop Beating Yourself Up.”

In this workshop Bodhipaksa will introduce a step-by-step guide to the core skills of self-compassion. As well as drawing on models from Buddhist psychology, we’ll take a look at insights from neuroscience, and explore Buddhist compassion and lovingkindness meditation so that we can learn to regard ourselves — and our pain — with compassion and kindness.

The Power of Self-Compassion: A Workshop in Toronto, Oct 19, 2013

On this workshop we’ll explore the power that self-compassion has to free us from hurt and fear, and to free us up to be compassionate toward others.

Studies have shown that self-compassion leads to greater emotional resilience and happiness. When we’re compassionate toward ourselves not only are we happier, but we’re also more able to help other people.

And yet many of us find it hard to have compassion for ourselves. We tend to be self-critical, and have difficult distinguishing self-compassion from self-pity and self-indulgence. On this day of meditation and reflection, Bodhipaksa will guide us through practical exercises in learning to regard ourselves — and our pain — with compassion. (Download the PDF poster here.)
