What’s the vision of self-compassion?

Healing and transformation are possible.

Our self-critical patterns come from being disconnected from essence love, the basic sense of okayness we were born with.

By deepening our understanding, and gently re-connecting with our heart, we develop genuine compassion for ourselves.

Self-compassion is not indulgence.

This journey of inner healing frees our heart to really understand and love others fearlessly.

Self-compassion is good for the planet.

By cultivating self-compassion, we’re creating widening circles of healing and kindness in the world.

“Self-compassion is hearing your own cry in the dark
