Self-kindness is being as caring toward ourselves as we would be toward others who we care about.Instead of attacking ourselves we offer ourselves warmth, acceptance and encouragement.

Common Humanity

All of us are flawed, we all fail, we all make mistakes and experience hardship in life. Self- compassion honours the unavoidable fact that life entails suffering , for everyone, without exception.


Mindfullness is part of self-compassion because we need to be able to turn toward and acknowledge when we’re suffering, to ‘be’ with our pain long enough to respond to ourselves with care and kindness.
