Selbstmitgefühl: eine heldenhafte Reise zu Mut, Liebe und Verbundenheit 

Selbstmitgefühl ist die Alternative zur Selbstkritik. Selbstkritik führt zu Anspannung und Leid, Selbstmitgefühl hingegen führt zu Vertrauen, Wohlbefinden und aufrichtiger Verbundenheit. Und Selbstmitgefühl kann man lernen. Wir können lernen, für uns da zu sein wie ein guter Freund, der auf unsere Unvollkommenheiten mit Warmherzigkeit, Verständnis und Güte reagiert.

“There’s the potential to directly apply this seminar in my work with activists on tough issues where they are emotionally impacted. Seeing others with understanding and without judgment is important for creating a supportive and safe environment for trainees in capacity-building programs. I will be bringing what I learned into my curriculum content. Overall, I found this retreat to be a profound spring clean, and I’m confident that I am able to continue with ease.”     – Lisa, NGO trainer
