This is NEW Workshop that sold out in Oxford in March. Early booking is recommended

This workshop will explore with participants the nature and functions of self-criticism, distinguishing them from guilt and other self-conscious emotions. Participants will then be introduced to some of the basic compassion focused mind training practices such as breathing and grounding, cultivating the compassion mind and self, functional analysis of self-criticism and using the compassionate self to address self-criticism and compassionately engaging with self-criticism. We will explore the distinction between shame based self-criticism and compassion-based self correction. Participants will be given opportunities to work with their own material. But participants should be aware however that this is a practice workshop and not personal therapy workshop and are responsible for their own well-being during the workshop.
