About the HeartWorks Practice Circle
This online practice group is set up to support you in your ongoing mindfulness, self-compassion and radical self-wisdom practice. We’ll do practices from the Somatic Self-Compassion (SSC) program. All get-togethers are hosted by Kristy Arbon.
Format and Content
Each week we’ll do an arriving mediation, a check-in, a practice, and a debrief. Get-togethers will be one hour long. All are welcome! No prerequisites required.
The practice group meets during weeks when Kristy is available. You can see when we meet next, in your local time, below:

You will need to sign up to attend a practice group get-together. If there are less than 3 people signed up for a particular get-together 24 hours before the get-together, I will likely have to cancel that get-together (sorry!).
HeartWorks Practice Circles are designed to support your self-compassion practice. In Practice Circles we are invited to share our challenges with practice in a collaborative way to support our wellbeing in daily life. While many of us have emotional wounds from childhood, Practice Circle is not resourced to directly focus on resolving past traumas. Rather, it is an opportunity to explore ways we are using mindfulness and self-compassion in our current daily life, and how we want to be using our self-compassion practice to support us. In reality, our past hurts arose in community, and can be healed by being in a supportive community, regardless of whether we specifically talk about our individual trauma stories. Group members are invited to keep their sharing to practice-related comments that we can all relate to and to save the details of individual conflict resolution work for individual sessions with a therapist, counsellor or teacher.

The practice group is offered freely as a gift to the HeartWorks community. The HeartWorks community relies on the generosity of its members to sustain it. HeartWorks is a small business birthed by Kristy Arbon and supported by some amazing folks committed to sharing self-compassion work, with a deep wish for liberation and a desire to connect.
