Affectionate Awareness: A Self-Compassion Practice
Jennifer Jope, Mental Health Counselor, Bristol Student Wellness
This presentation is an invitation to journey towards radical self-compassion. Blending insight from psychological research on self-compassion with mindfulness exercises, we develop a greater awareness of our inner voice and expand our understanding of the role and consequences of the inner critic. This understanding guides us towards amplifying self-kindness and softening into the grace of our common humanity.
