Get Started and Unstuck on the Path to Becoming Your Best Friend

Do you want to be kinder to yourself but struggle with regular self-compassion meditations?

Do fears or doubts block you?

A life-long habit of unkindness does not disappear after a few minutes. In fact, the parts of us that have kept us safe by ignoring our needs or treating us harshly get scared by the idea of change and block our progress. 

In this 10-part audio course you will learn about your roadblocks, understand and befriend these parts and get to test out common alternative routes to get you started with self-compassion or get you unstuck.
