Join the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) for an 8-week mindfulness-based self-compassion course intended to increase self-awareness through a heart-centered approach. Through the lens of self-compassion this mindfulness course will promote greater self-acceptance, an increased ability to endure difficult emotions, and provide self-soothing techniques during moments of inner chaos. Through practice, planting the seeds of mindfulness self-compassion can result in healing old self-defeating patterns such as self-criticism and blame. Over time, and with the support of a group, the subtler qualities of self-compassion, wisdom, and inner stability can emerge.
