Acceptance and Compassion Workshop
Monday 17th November | 7-8.30pm | On zoom
When we face difficulty, we can adopt either Avoidance Strategies or Approach Strategies.
Avoidance generally creates more anxiety as we go into rumination and spiral into stressful thinking and low mood. Avoiding the difficulty altogether also means we miss out on a sense of achievement and growth.
When we use an Approach Strategy, we turn towards the difficulty. To do so requires us to accept our situation.
In this workshop, we will explore how to accept our lives as they really are. Rather than suppressing, avoiding or catastrophising, we will turn towards the difficulty. We need to cultivate compassion for ourselves and others in order to truly accept how things are. Then we are able to make wiser choices and stand on firmer ground.
This 90 minute workshop shows you how.
