Self-compassion Workshop:
Attacking ourselves when we already Are struggling 

We have a tendency to attack ourselves when we already are challenged. This workshop will put a light on how Mindfulness and Self-Compassion can show us alternative paths to follow in difficult and stressful situations.

The teacher will guide you through different self-compassion exercises incl. meditations.  All in all, we will explore how helpful it can be to bring in mindfulness and self-compassion in various situations.

A 2017 study published in Health Psychology Open* found that people who have higher levels of self-compassion/ who treat themselves as a good friend in difficult situations handle stress better"

Peace in the mist of chaos

What do we do when we are stessed and/or challenged?

- something that increases stress og reduces it?

 

I have a tendency to emptying a bag of chips in very high speed when monkey mind sets in - when/ and after being in a challenging situation.

But, does bags of chips help os?

 

Or does it help to distract oneself?

To run away from the problem?

Blame others for our discomfort? etc. ? 

 

Or are there other paths to follow in the middle of chaos, so we don't get drained, exhausted and e.g. turn to that bag of chips?

We examine this in the talk  "Peace in the mist of Chaos", which is avaliable for booking in week 41 via the Velliv Foreningen. Chose the talk "Sig mig, er det din onkel der er død? at vellivs homepage, and then we adapt it to the need of your employees.
