If you ever feel berated, pushed around, down-trodden, guilted, shamed, or run-over, and all by the voices in your mind, then do we have the compassionate, life-changing show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Kristin Neff, psychologist, researcher, and pioneer in the field of self-compassion. She’s also the author of “self-compassion the proven power of being kind to yourself” and her family’s amazing healing journey is featured in the award-winning documentary, The Horse Boy, …one of the most powerful and beautiful documentaries I’ve ever seen…just bring plenty of Kleenex!

Today we’ll be talking about self-compassion or true caring, concern and love for you; what it really looks like, what it feels like, why it’s different from self-esteem, and why it’s so incredibly important and needed in our lives (despite what we’ve been taught).

That plus we’ll look a squeegee man, a hugging practice, the lake Wobeggon Effect, and how connecting with horses truly changes lives.

Questions and Topics Include:

  1. How her autistic son taught her self-compassion
  2. Where did the desire to study self-compassion come from?

  10. What Kristin Neff is finding in over 10 years of studying self-compassion
  11. How we have self-compassion backwards (and how it makes us stronger, rather than weaker)
  12. Why the rod and stick (spare the rod, spoil the child) is backwards and leads to self-criticism and undermining self-confidence
  13. What’s the difference between self-compassion and self-esteem
  14. What’s wrong with self-esteem and what’s the backlash from promoting self-esteem?
  15. Why self-compassion doesn’t seem to have the negative side-effects that self-esteem does
  16. Why we’re more likely to take responsibility because it’s safe to do so.
  17. How self-compassion gives you the emotional resources to be at our best
  18. What is self-kindness?
  19. What are the three main triggers of the compassion mechanism?
  20. What’s the hugging exercise?
  21. Why you want to touch yourself or put a hand on yourself to help calm you down and put you in a place of self-compassion (yes, this is touchy-feely)

  23. Why tones are so important and often more important than the language itself
  24. What is common humanity and why is it so important
