How can practicing self-compassion help you to feel better?
The cultivation of self-compassion is primarily a preventive measure. Extensive study data shows that greater self-compassion correlates with increases in psychological well-being as well as decreases in anxiety, depression, reactivity, and stress reactions. In addition, individuals with high self-compassion are better able to maintain satisfying relationships as well as healthy lifestyles which, for example, include meeting goals around diet and exercise. The lack of self-compassion and harsh self-criticism has been correlated with depression, anxiety, and stress-responses like burnout. These findings suggest that by learning to meet our own needs, not only do we become more resilient and have more capacity to be there for others, we are more able to live a healthy and fulfilled life.
“Self-compassion entails being warm and understanding toward ourselves when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate, rather than ignoring our pain or flagellating ourselves with self-criticism.”
– Dr. Kristin Neff Co-Creator of Mindful Self-Compassion program
The three core-components of self-compassion.
Self-kindness vs. Self-judgment
Common humanity vs. Isolation
Mindfulness vs. Over-identification
Each week of the course covers a different topic; including a weekly group session of 2.5 hours each, plus an in-depth day of four to five hours of exercises. There are a number of materials that follow the topics in the form of videos, texts, journal exercises, and meditations within an online interactive platform that supports participation and facilitates communication among participants!

More than 1000 satisfied participants!
on their mindful & compassion-based programs.
I got acquainted with the work of the Mindfulness corner center through several programs and I give a warm recommendation. I would like to single out practical exercises through which we get to know and understand ourselves better and it is easier for us to face and overcome challenging situations.
Thank you Christine so much for your ‘gifts’ that have helped me in so many life situations. You have helped us a lot to lay a wonderful foundation for parenthood, outside of a couple relationship. We are coping very well with everyday life and challenges and we are very aware of how much we owe to you.”
Be kind to yourself, and control your stress.
