The Power of Self Compassion
Our guest today, Kristin Neff, followed the drive her own personal pain into the post-doctoral research to find her freedom.
An associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin’s she has been credited with conducting the first academic studies into self-compassion. Pioneer, author and speaker our guest’s work has been featured extensively across the globe, including the New York Times. Mindful.org and The Greater Good Magazine to name a few.
What I love about our guest is her determination to help us push past the critical voice in our heads that most of us never even acknowledge but live with each day. Her work has the power to liberate you from the hold of judgement, freeing you to find new levels of self-soothing and compassion and along the way create an open-heartedness that can foster unconditional love for yourself and others.

- What is self-compassion?
- We debunk a few myths about self-compassion (some may surprise you)
