The Gift of Self-Compassion This Holiday Season (webinar)
In the holiday season we talk a lot about kindness to others, to strangers, to our families. But it is important to remember kindness and compassion to ourselves, especially as caregivers and especially during holidays when things can feel even more pressured. In this interactive session we will share practical ways to build compassion towards ourselves, and those around us, including using mindfulness as a useful technique for deepening compassion.
