Mindful Self-Compassion, TJ 7/20 – 7/24

Tassajara Jul 20, 2017 - Jul 24, 2017 Reserve Online

with Michelle Becker and Nomon Tim Burnett
July 20 – 24 (Thursday – Monday)

When we truly see things as they are the only thing that makes sense is compassion.

Suzuki Roshi famously said, “Each of you is perfect the way you are ... and you can use a little improvement.” And yet when we turn towards improvement we often react to the difficulties of life and our own foibles with very little kindness or compassion towards ourselves. Self-compassion is a skill that can be learned by anyone. When we can rely on meeting ourselves with kindness we are able to open more fully to the truth of things as they are.

Through a process of meditation, reflective exercises, dialog, and written reflections we will examine the core supports for increased self-compassion.
