Wellness Hour – The Benefits of Self-Compassion

  • This event has passed.

May 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

5:00 pm ET | 4:00 pm CT | 3:00 pm MT | 2:00 pm PT

Self-compassion is simply about treating ourselves in difficult times with the same kindness and compassion that we would treat a good friend who is struggling. We already know how to do this when it comes to other people. However, making this U-turn and turning this compassion toward ourselves can be a challenge. This session will focus on the benefits of self-compassions and how it can help us navigate the challenges of living with FSHD. Ora Prilleltensky, a member of our FSHD community and a trained Mindful Self-Compassion teacher, will take us through a few exercises that can help us cultivate this important resource.

Our monthly Zoom meeting on Wellness is held on the second Monday of each month at 5:00-6:00 pm ET. Each month, we’ll have a conversation starter topic, but this is an informal gathering and if the discussion veers off in other directions, that’s OK! We hope you’ll drop by to enjoy the company of some of the wonderful people in our community.

The Wellness Hour is open to everyone in the FSHD community. This is your time to enjoy the company of fellow FSHers, share challenges, talk about what works for you, and feel validated and supported in whatever you may be going through.
