You are warmly welcome to join us at the Imagination Club on Wednesday, 19 September at 18h45 for an interactive, experimental workshop on:


a tool to deal with life’s challenging moments

By Ruth Friedman

Do you ever get stressed, over-reactive, or frustrated when faced with difficult moments and assume that there must be a better way to handle things? Well, there is – its called self-compassion., and it REALLY WORKS!! Come along and find out more...

Self-compassion draws on research from contemporary psychology together with wisdom from ancient traditions to provide a set of simple tools to help you get through life’s challenging and stressful moments with more grace, ease and sense of balance.

During the workshop you will learn the core components of self-compassion, find out why it works and discover how it can help you deal with stress in your life.

Using experiential exercises, you will learn simple tools so that you can transform your relationship to stress; find more kindness for yourself and others in challenging moments; and better appreciate the good moments in life. These tools can help transform moments of stress and challenge into productive and enriching times.
