“Our task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi


Most of us know the commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”


Jesus is undoubtedly teaching his followers to love others well.


But there’s a hidden nugget in there that’s easy to miss: Jesus is also saying you need to love yourself well in order to love others well.


Self-compassion isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity for living and loving well. And it ripples out for the benefit of you and those around you.


Modern research has revealed that people who practice self-compassion experience:

• Greater happiness
• More motivation
• More satisfying relationships
• Less anxiety and depression
• Better physical health


Want to learn more? Join us for a 1/2 day workshop and ask the questions: What barriers have I built against loving myself well? How can I cultivate a more conscious, compassionate relationship with myself?
