Support yourself with mindful self-compassion

First Aired: October 5, 2014

“If your compassion doesn’t include yourself, it is incomplete.” – Jack Kornfield

Many of Cornucopia’s programs help those journeying with cancer to care for themselves. This show focuses on a specific kind of mindfulness called mindful self-compassion.

According to the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, “It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves, especially when we’re suffering – cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering.”

Our guest is psychologist Cecilia Fernandez-Hall, who has trained in and teaches mindful self-compassion techniques. Learn about the impact of self-kindness and common humanity.
