Allowing Yourself to Grow: Promoting Self-Compassion to Prevent Burnout
February 12, 2013 2:30-4:00
The Tea Atrium
What does it take for a plant to grow?  Just like plants, we need nourishment and love in order to grow and be happy. In this workshop, we will work through embracing self-compassion which has been shown to be a valuable coping resource when people are struggling with difficult situations in their lives.  Being in a Imagecompetitive and achievement-driven environment as students, the concept of adopting a kind, accepting and non-judgemental attitude toward ourselves is often undermined. Reduce and prevent burnout by supporting yourself rather than judging yourself, while meditationworking to attain the goals you want to achieve! Due to the location of the workshop, space is limited so we ask students to honor their booking or cancel in advance so other students may benefit from the workshop.This is an event open to students at concordia but you do have to register : FREE
