The Power of Self-Compassion – Free Introduction Workshop

with Wiebke Pausch and Anja Benesch


Friday, September 20, 2024

19:00 – 20:30

This Free Introductory session is part of the weekend workshop (see below)


Weekend Workshop: Soft Front – Strong Back: Exploring Tender and Fierce Self-Compassion

with Wiebke Pausch and Anja Benesch


September 21 & 22, 2024 | all day

With Self-Compassion we can access a sense of a loving, connected and supportive presence. In order to be truly self-compassionate – in order to be whole – we need to integrate both versions of self-compassion, the tender and the fierce.

Comforting and Soothing practices are teaching us how to be with ourselves in a gentle and tender way, which helps us to gain inner strength.

Fierce Compassion – the action-oriented side of self-compassion – enables us to see a situation with clarity, giving us the courage to act skillfully and effectively in the world.

In this workshop we will explore together

❥ how to comfort and soothe ourselves with Tender Compassion,

❥ how to protect and motivate ourselves with Fierce Compassion,

❥ how to take a Self-Compassionate Break from a challenging situation,

❥ Mindfulness and Self-Compassion practices for everyday life.
