Self-Compassion: Sending Ourselves a Friend Request
Start Date: 11/8/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 11/8/2017End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description

Life is full of challenges: personal, professional and political. Some challenges we welcome; others we wish would just go away. The bad news is that there’s no remote; we can’t switch to a different challenge. The good news is that we can befriend ourselves in a way that makes us more resilient and better able to cope with adversity. The practice of self-compassion is a simple and powerful way to navigate the challenges that come our way. This is not selfishness or self-indulgence, but the courage to make friends with reality.

Jude Robison has been practicing mindfulness meditation since 1980 and has taught meditation in cities across the United States and Canada. Formerly the co-director of Karme Choling Meditation Center in Vermont, she is currently a senior teacher and lead meditation instructor at the Philadelphia Shambhala Meditation Center. Movement is fully incorporated in her mindfulness practice through Contemplative Dance Practice and The Quiet Circus performance project. She has a BA in Philosophy and an MFA in Bookarts and Printmaking.
