Practicing Self-compassion During Challenging Times – the Holidays!

The mind demands perfection and is often very critical when we don’t meet our own high internal standards. This can be especially true during the holiday season where we are supposed to be perfect at everything! However, current research suggests that being kind to ourselves, especially when we aren’t perfect, can help us to actually be better (i.e., closer to perfection) the next time around. In this workshop, come and learn some meditative techniques that help us to be kinder and more compassionate to ourselves.

This lecture will be given by Dr. Rhonda Swickert, PhD. Dr. Swickert is a professor and Associate Chair of the CofC psychology department. Her research interests are focused on factors that promote well-being and primarily revolve around mindful awareness.

This event is part of Still Soul Studio's ongoing lecture series about the psychological, neurological, and societal benefits of the meditation practice.
