You’re Nothing without Me: Mindfulness and Self-Compassion to increase Self Confidence in an age of Entitlement
A workshop exploring the place of compassion and self compassion and how they can be used as the 'power of change' in self confidence.
“loving yourself means knowing how great you are and not letting any person, any place, or any thing ever get in the way of that” – Diane Mastromarino – The Little Girls Guide to Loving Yourself: a book about falling in love with the one person who matters most… yourself.
What happens when increased confidence inflates and becomes narcissism and does self-acceptance mean letting oneself off the hook? Mindfulness and compassion practices are increasingly being used as a form of self-help, and are often used as an antidote to low self-esteem and low self-confidence.
In this workshop we will explore the place of compassion and self compassion in helping us accurately face reality and understand why we are not more compassionate. We will look at the difference between self-esteem and self-compassion and how self compassion can be used as the “power of change” in self confidence.
As well as case studies, we will look at Twenge and Campbells work on the Narcissism Epidemic; Mary Welford’s approach to building client self confidence using Compassion Focused Therapy and the work of Kristen Neff and Christopher Germer in exploring mindful self compassion.
