Welcome to the Center for Somatic Self-Compassion! We’re glad you’re here!
The mission of the Center for Somatic Self-Compassion is to educate, train and support a community of people in their somatic self-compassion practice.
The Center for Somatic Self-Compassion’s principles are:
- Connecting in community is crucial to sustaining a self-compassion practice. We are social beings with many demands on our lives. Being included in community helps us to show up for ourselves.
- Our body is the font of emotional wisdom, our inner compass, the gatekeeper that grants permission and sets boundaries, and our nurturing arms. Our body is the soft animal who offers us exquisite pleasure, deep spiritual connection and a source of authentic joy.
- Holding emergent space allows for organic, responsive, co-created offerings. Structure and emergence are balanced to respond to the needs to the community.
- Contemporary advances in psychology and somatics inform our ever-evolving work.
- Training is accessible to all, regardless of finances.
The Center for Somatic Self-Compassion’s offerings include:
- practice groups;
- online training;
- in-person training.
The three components* of self-compassion within the Somatic Self-Compassion approach are:
- Awareness: noticing our thoughts, feelings and sensations.
- Affection: feeling warm towards ourselves and others.
- Connection: feeling a sense of being in relationship with ourselves, our community and nature.
