Cultivating Self-Compassion

  • Columbia Gorge Community College, Hood River Campus (map)

Anchor in your aliveness with Ellen Donoghue, PhD!   Check out this upcoming class...

Self-compassion is a key inner-strength that supports an overall sense of well-being and buffers us from effects of life’s inevitable challenges. Many people have difficulty cultivating self-compassion. We are often much more harsh on ourselves than we would be to a friend or loved-one. Psychological research indicates that harsh inner-criticism can be debilitating over-time, wearing us down, and making it harder for us to progress toward goals. In this class we explore ways to grow a sense of being on your own side and practicing self-nurturing. We will learn how to silence an over-vocal inner-critic and create an enriching voice of inner-guidance. As we cultivate self-compassion we become more resilient to the ebbs and flows of life and live with greater ease and contentment. Classes include presentations, discussions, and guided practices.

Thursday evenings, October 18th – November 8th, 6-7:30pm, HR Campus. $79. Registration required.
