Session Details

The work of social change is hard and challenging. We need to be there for the long haul without losing heart no matter how defeating the task may appear to be. This session on cultivating resilience through self-compassion, helps participants explore alternative ways to relate to disappointments, failure and challenges. Through self-reflective exercises they learn to appreciate that much of the distress they experience in the face of disappointments and the vagaries of life is caused by their own conditioned ways of thinking. They reflect on their own unhelpful thinking patterns. They understand the role of self-compassion and its relationship to cultivating a growth mindset and resilience and learn strategies to cultivate the same.
