Research shows that self-compassion is one of the most important factors in dealing with life’s difficulties and is more effective than self-esteem for reaching goals and having a satisfying life. In this three-part series we will explore what it means to be a self-compassionate person, tools to cultivate more self-compassion, and strategies to work with your inner critic.

Week One: Introduction to Self-Compassion
   •
  What it is, why it’s important, and how to practice it

Week Two: Developing Resources and Working with Your Inner Critic
    •
 Practices that encourage knowing your “Wise Self”
    •  How to silence your own critical voice

Week Three: Overcoming Pitfalls on the Road to Self-Compassion
   •  Why self-compassion is an ongoing practice
   •  How to stay motivated
   •  How to recognize the effects of it in your life

Kate Wester has been practicing yoga and meditation for more than twenty-five years. She is a teacher and integrative therapist drawn to the intersection of body-centered, contemplative, and expressive arts practices, incorporating mindfulness, somatic awareness, and the enhancement of self-compassion. Kate is a pastoral counselor at the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being.

Spiritual Life Coaching

Spiritual Life Coaching, also referred to as spiritual direction, seeks to awaken us to the presence of the divine or sacred in our lives. A spiritual life coach or director is a companion on the journey of discovering how God or the transcendent is present in our day-to-day lives, as well as in moments of prayer and meditation. Spiritual Life Coaching is open to persons of all faith traditions who seek to deepen their relationship with the divine, to know their true self, and to be in right relationship with others.

To arrange for a spiritual director, call the Center at 312.787.8425.
