In the Spotlight:
Self-compassion, self-empathy, and acceptance

NVC and Self-Compassion

For the month of December commit to a practice of offering compassion, empathy, and acceptance to yourself. Extend the same kindness and care that you might offer a friend to yourself. Even a single moment of self-care can impact your well-being. So imagine the potential impact of regularly practicing self-compassion, self-empathy, and acceptance.

The work of self-compassion is not about getting better. This implies judgment about the experience. Instead of immediately acting to make a change, listen as Robert suggests practicing unconditional self-acceptance through spacious presence to our inner experience. 

Mary offers two self-empathy exercises: I Love It When, and What Do I Want / Why Do I Want It. These exercises will help you deepen your ability to connect with self.

Inbal Kashtan speaks directly to parents about the impact of self-empathy in creating healthy relationships.

Integrating a full living involves grief/mourning and gratitude. Here we'll more deeply integrate inner and outer dimensions of gratitude and grief. In any experience there's the outer aspect, an event that occurs in life. And there's the inner response to the outer event. When we judge the outer positively or negatively we're in tension or resistance to our experience. Here we'll explore a more integrated mode of experiencing.
