Being dissatisfied with oneself is seen as a primary motivation to improve and go forward. Acceptance and contentment with oneself and one’s situation are almost always seen as a way of resigning to what is instead of striving.
The underlying fear of it all: If I become compassionate and accepting of who I am, I will become complacent and ineffective. I will not take up opportunities to create and thrive and will end up being unhappy and miserable
Whether we consciously believe it or not, this is a deep unconscious narrative that plays up in our life, time and again.
As a psychologist, I see this narrative being greatly responsible for the restlessness and unhappiness in a lot of people.
Self-improvement and self-compassion are not mutually exclusive. But how does one stay compassionate, accepting and still thrive?
Let’s spend time discussing, contemplating, and meditating on this so we have a framework for how we can bring self-compassion into our lives. And let’s do it with a group of like-minded people with whom we can share, discuss and deepen our learning.
The Self-Compassion Retreat will provide an Opportunity for:
- Discussions on self-compassion with like-minded others in small groups
- Silent contemplation of the application of self-compassion to one’s situation
- Meditation for times when self-compassion is difficult
