In today’s practice, I am sharing a bit of my own personal practice of self-compassion as a final wrap-up to our month of being At Home In The Heart. The work of self-compassion is integral to our practice of mindfulness and hugely important for the difficult moments –

The feelings of failure, fear or vulnerability rise up time and again throughout our lives, and self-compassion is one of the tools to help us move through these moments with more ease.

We will be guided by the words of Mark Nepo, “Our challenge each day is not to get dressed to face the world, but to unglue ourselves so that the doorknob feels cold, and the car handle feels wet, and the kiss goodbye feels like the lips of another being, soft and unrepeatable.”

This work is an intentional softening of the armor around our hearts and a tenderness sent towards all our thoughts and feelings. Join me today for this brief talk and 20-minute guided meditation. Let’s make self-compassion part of our day today <3 *** Did you know I have a FREE meditation starter kit on my website?
